GOVEENOR ChAEEES B. AyCOCK, 

Raleigh, N. C. 
Sie: — ^We hand yon herewith onr report for the year 1903, being 
the fifth annual report of the !N"orth Carolina Corporation Com- 
mission. 

EAILEOADS, 

During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1903, 68.93 miles of rail- 
road were constrncted and put in operation in the State, and there 
was a total at the eiid of that year of 3,750.88 miles of railroad- in 
operation. The net earnings of railroads within the State were 
greater for the last fiscal year than they had ever been. Gross earn- 
ings amounted to $18,610,815.39, operating expenses $12,136,977.52. 
The number of employees of railroads within the State for the year 
was 14,652, against 11,401 for the previous vear. We regret to say 
that there was considerable increase in casualties also. These reports 
show that 121 w^ere killed and 1,657 were injured, against the report 
for the previous year of 87 killed and 1,068 injured. Of the killed, 
these reports show that 5 were passengers, 43 were employees, and 61 
were trespassers and 12 not trespassers. Of the injured, 176 were 
passengers, 571 were employees, and 131 were trespassers and 32 not 
trespassers. The total number of passengers carried during the year 
was 4,442,794. 

WOEK OF THE COMMISSION. 

There were 389 complaints made to the Commission during the 
year 1903 against the railroad companies. The greater part of these 
were settled by correspondence satisfactorily to all parties. In some 
of the cases hearinsrs w^ere had and orders made. These orders were

obeyed in all cases except one, namely, in the case of the Greensboro 
Ice and Coal Company against the Sonthern R-ailway. In this case 
there was an appeal, which will be sent to the Superior Conrt of Guil- 
ford County for trial. 

For the convenience of parties, the Commission held sessions at 
Durham, Charlotte, Greensboro and Hickory during the year. Un- 
der powers conferred by laws passed by the General Assembly in 
1903, the Commission promulgated rules regulating demurrage and 
storage charges, which, it is hoped, will relieve complaints for failure 
to furnish cars and failure to deliver freights and prevent excessive 
charges for storage. 

The most important work of the Commission was the assessment 
of railroad, street railway, telegraph, express and telephone com- 
panies, electric light and power companies, water companies, etc. 
The result of this work was an increase over former assessments of 
railroad property of $26,791,796. The total assessed value of all 
railroad property in the State is $69,119,058. The, total assessed 
value of all properties assessed by this Commission amounted to 
.$73,802,686.42. 

BANKS. 

There are now 155 banks in this State, against 120 at date of our 
last report, and 65 at the date of our report for 1899, the year in 
which the supervision of banks was conferred upon this Commission. 
The total resources of banks in 1899 were $11,275,490; in 1902, 
$22,341,418, and according to reports of banks at the close of business 
on IN'ovember 17, 1903, which reports are summarized in this report, 
the total resources were $26,168,282. The reports of the banks will 
not be inserted in full in this volume as in our former reports, for 
the reason that they have already been published separately and dis- 
tributed to persons entitled thereto. A list of the banks in the State, 
giving name, location, names of officers, capital stock, when chartered, 
when organized and opened for business, will be found in this report. 

Mr. John O. Ellington, of Johnston County, Avas elected Bank 
Examiner, and entered upon the discharge of his duties as such on 
the 1st day of June, 1903. After an experience of a few months, it 
was apparent that Mr. Ellington could not discharge all of the duties,

and Mr. W. L. Williams, Jr., of Cumberland County, was elected 
Assistant, and entered upon liis duties on November 1, 1903. 

Tliere were two failures during the year — the Merchants and 
Farmers Bank of New Bern, and the Pilot Bank and I'rust Company 
at Pilot Mountain. Both of these failures were attributable to the 
dishonesty of cashiers. The creditors of the former have been paid in 
full, as we are informed, and the creditors of the latter will be paid 
in full, according to our information. 

As soon as the insolvency of these banks was discovered, the Bank 
Examiner was directed by the Cbmmission to take possession of the 
assets and hold the same until a receiver could be appointed, and 
this was done in each instance. 

BUILDING AND LOAN ASSOCIATIONS. 

The building and loan associations are all State organizations, and 
are in a prosperous condition and serving a very useful purpose in 
the State. There are now 36 in operation in the State. From re- 
ports to this office, as of December 31, 1902, compilations have been 
made which show that these institutions have assets aggregating 
$2,232,507.68. The name, location, officers, assets and liabilities of 
each building and loan association are given in this report. 

We would acknowledge our obligation for the faithful and efficient 
work of our Chief Clerk, Mr. H. C. Btowu, and Assistant Clerk, Mr. 
J. K. Long, and Stenographer, Miss Elsie Kiddick. 
Eespectfully submitted,

two or more railroads which now or hereafter may enter any city 
or town to have one common or union passenger depot for the 
security, accommodation and convenience of traveling public, and 
to unite in the joint undertaking and expense of erecting, construct- 
ing and maintaining such union passenger depot commensurate with 
the business and revenues of such railroad companies or corporations, 
on such terms, regulations, provisions and conditions as the said 
Commission shall prescribe: Provided, that such railroad company 
or corporation be allowed the right of appeal as in cases of rulings, 
and orders as to rates of freight and fare: Provided further, that 
the railroads so ordered to construct a union depot shall have power

structing a line of railroad: Provided further, that nothing in this 
act shall be construed to authorize the Commissioners to require the

venient and offer suitable accommodations for the traveling public.

RULES OF PRACTICE 



CASES AND PROCEEDINGS 

BEFORE THE COURT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA 
CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



Public Sessions. 



1. The general sessions of the court for the hearing of contested cases will be 
held at its office in the agricultural building, Raleigh, N. C, on the first Wednes- 
day of each month at 11 o'clock a. m. When special sessions are held at other 
places such regulations as may be necessary will be made by the court. 

Parties. 

2. Where a complaint concerns anything done or omitted to be done by only a 
single carrier no other need be made a party, but if it relates to joint tariffs, or 
matters in which two or more carriers doing business under a common control, 
management or arrangement for a continuous carriage or shipment are inter- 
ested, all the carriers constituting such line must be made parties. A complaint 
may embrace several carriers, or lines of carriers, operated separately, in the 
same proceeding, when the subject-matter of the complaint involves substantially 
the same alleged violation of the law by the several carriers or lines. Persons or 
carriers not parties may apply, in any pending case or proceeding, for leave to 
intervene and to be heard upon the questions involved. 

GENERAL RULES. 
Proceedings Before the Court. 

3. All petitions and complaints made before the court for redress of alleged 
grievances, must plainly and distinctly set forth the grounds of complaint; the 
items being numbered and objections all set forth in writing. In like manner all 
defences must be distinctly set forth in writing, and the items numbered as 
above stated. These specifications, whether of complaint or defence, may be ac- 
companied, if the parties desire, by an explanation or argument, or by any sug- 
gestion as to the proper remedy or policy, and may be verified by the affidavit of 
the party complaining or petitioning, taken before any person authorized to ad- 
minister oaths in North Carolina, and when the complaint or petition is verified, 
then the answer thereto shall be verified, and the verification shall conform to 
the rules prescribed in The Code of North Carolina for the verification of plead- 
ings. The parties may also be heard in person or by attorney, or by written argu- 
ment, upon such written statement being first filed. 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 53 

4. If a carrier complained against shall deem the complaint insufficient to 
show a breach of legal duty, it may, instead of filing an answer, serve on the 
complainant notice for a hearing of the ease on the complaint; and in case of 
the service of such notice, the facts stated in the complaint will be taken as ad- 
mitted. A copy of the notice must at the same time be filed with ihe court. The 
filing of an answer will not be deemed an admission of the sufficiency of the 
complaint, but a motion to dismiss for insufficiency may be made at the hearing. 

Service of Papers. 

5. Copies of notices or other papers must be served upon the opposite parties 
to the proceeding, personally or by mail, and when any party shall have appeared 
by attorney, the service upon the attorney shall be deemed proper service upon 
the party. If party so notified shall fail to answer within ten days after such 
notice, then the court in its discretion may grant the relief demanded. 

Amendments. 

6. Upon application by any petitioner or party, amendments may be allowed by 
the court, in its discretion, to any petition, answer, or other pleading in any pro- 
ceeding before the Commission. 

Adjournment and Extension of Time. 

7. Adjournment and extension of time may be granted upon the application of 
parties in the discretion of the court. 

Stipulations. 

8. Parties to cases and proceedings before the court may, by stipulation, duly 
signed by them and filed with the secretary, agree upon the facts, or any portion 
of the facts, they deem to be involved in the controversy, which agreed state- 
ment shall be regarded and used as evidence. It is desirable that the facts be 
thus agreed upon whenever practicable. 

Hearings. 

9. Upon issue being joined by the service of answer, the court will assign a 
time and place for hearing the same which will be at its office in Raleigh, N. C, 
at its regular session, unless otherwise ordered. Witnesses will be examined 
orally before the court, unless testimony be taken or facts agreed upon as other- 
wise provided in these rules. The petitioner or complainant must in all cases 
prove the existence of the facts alleged to constitute a violation of the act, unless 
the carrier complained of shall admit the same, or shall fail to answer the com- 
plaint. Facts alleged in the answer must also be proved by the carrier, unless 
admitted by the petitioner. In cases of failure to answer, the court will take 
such proof of the charge as may be deemed reasonable and proper, and make such 
order thereon as the circumstances of the case appear to require. 

Witnesses and Depositions. 

10. Subpoenas requiring the attendance of witnesses will be issued by any 
member of the court in all cases and proceedings before it, and witnesses will 



54 K". C. CORPOBATION' COMMISSION". 

be required to obey the subpoenas served upon them requiring their attendance or 
the production of any books, papers, tariffs, contracts, agreements or documents 
relating to any matter under investigation or pending before the court. When a 
subpoena is desired for the production of books, papers or other documentary evi- 
dence, special application must be made to the court therefor, specifying the 
documentary evidence desired. When a cause is at issue on petition and answer, 
each party may proceed at once to take depositions of witnesses in the manner 
provided by section 1357 of The Code of North Carolina, and transmit them to the 
secretary of the commission without making any application to or obtaining any 
authority from the court for that purpose. 

Proposed Findings of Fact. 

11. Upon the final submission of a case to the court either party may submit 
proposed findings of fact for the consideration of the court, which findings must 
embrace only the material facts of the case supposed to be established by the 
testimony. 

Reports. 

12. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Carolina 
shall file in the office of the court quarterly reports showing in detail statement 
of freight and passenger earnings, operating expenses, etc., on such forms as may 
be prescribed from time to time by the court.

time of the out-going train that it is not practicable for a passenger to procure 
a ticket, no more than the schedule of passenger rates shall be charged. 

4. Railroad companies are authorized to collect the exact mileage for passen- 
ger fares if they shall make the necessary change to enable them to do so; but if 
not, no more than the nearest amount ending in 5 or shall be charged. 

5. No railroad company shall be allowed to charge more than ten cents for full 
or half-rate between regular stations when the fare would be less than that 
amount: Provided, where the distance is not greater than two miles or under 
the maximum charge for first-class tickets shall be ten cents, and five cents for 
second-class tickets. 



EULES OF PRACTICE. 55 

6. No more than the standard passenger tariff shall be charged passengers 
from flag stations or other stations where tickets are not kept on sale. 

7. When, in consequence of the uncertain time of arrival or departure of a 
delayed train, it is impracticable for tickets to be purchased, no more than the 
regular standard passenger rate shall be charged. 

8. Passengers unprovided with tickets, when opportunity has been afforded 
them by the railroad companies to procure the same, may be required by the 
railroads to pay to the conductor twenty-five cents excess of the fare upon re- 
ceiving from the conductor a drawback ticket for twenty-five cents, which shall 
be cashed upon presentation at any ticket office of the company within twenty 
days after date. 

9. The Commission will consider applications for an advance or reduction in 
the standard tariff for the transportation of passengers, but no change of rates 
shall be of effect or put in force until ratified by the Commission: Provided, 
that this rule shall not be construed as placing any restriction on the privilege 
of railroad companies to make special rates on excursion trains, or to issue what 
are called "commutation or mileage tickets": Provided, no unjust discrimina- 
tion is practiced. 

1-0. Tickets on sale at any office in a city must be kept on sale at the depot 
ticket-office of the same railroad at the same prices. 

11. That all connecting railroads which are under the management and con- 
trol by lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same company, or at con- 
nection with a different company, shall be required to make close connection 
whenever practicable. 

12. Eailroad companies in computing passenger rates between stations where 
fractions of a mile are to be considered, will calculate for the nearest even num- 
ber of miles. Example: For a distance of 10.49 miles or under, charge for ten 
miles; for 10.50 miles or over, charge for eleven miles, and so on. 

13. It shall be the duty of each railroad company to bulletin at every telegraph 
station along its line, and other stations if possible, ten minutes in advance of 
the schedule time of arrival of its trains, whether such train is on time and if be- 
hind its schedule time to state, as near as can be approximated, the time of its 
arrival. The bulletin board shall be placed in a conspicuous place at the ticket 
office, and all notices thereon of arrival and departure of trains shall be erased 
immediately after the departure of trains. 

14. On all mixed trains, carrying passengers, where two coaches are attached, 
first and second-class tickets must be sold. 

\A here only one coach is attached, only second-class rates shall be charged, 
unless the coach has sieparate apartments, then first and second-class rates may be 
charged. 

15. That all common carriers subject to the supervision of the Railroad Com- 
mission shall provide such means or appliances as may be necessary to secure 
the careful handling of and to prevent injury to any parcel of baggage to which 
a check may be affixed, as provided in section 1970 of The Code. 

That at all minor stations, where no proper appliances are supplied, and no 
regular depot hand is employed, the train hands shall be required to assist the 
baggage-master, and lift with care all baggage from the car-doors. 

16. All railroad companies, in addition to the usual bell-cord, shall place a 



56 K". C. CORPORATION" COMMISSION". 

safety-cord in each coach of the regular passenger trains, running through the 
entire length of the same. 

17. It shall be the duty of the Pullman Car Company, at all stations, on the 
stopping of trains, to have the doors of their cars open for the reception of pas- 
sengers and require the porter to have a step ready for the convenience of pas- 
sengers desiring to enter. 

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF FREIGHT. 

1. All connecting railroads, which are under the management and control, by 
lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same company, shall, for purposes 
of transportation, in applying this tariff, be considered as constituting but one 
and the same road, and the rates shall be computed as upon parts of one and the 
same road, unless otherwise specified. 

Distances. 

2. Since a separate rate cannot be conveniently given for every possible dis- 
tance, the law authorizes the Commission "to ascertain what sliall be the limits of 
longer and shorter distances." Five (5) miles has, accordingly, been fixed as 
the limit for a change of freight rates for all distances less than one hundred 
miles; and ten (10) miles for all distances over one hundred miles. The com- 
missioners reserve the right, however, to correct the charge in extreme cases 
which work hardship, although the same may not violate the letter of our 
rules. 

3. For all distances over five (5) miles and under one hundred (100) miles, 
the following rule will apply: When the mileage does not end in or 5 the 
nearest mileage so ending shall govern the rate. Illustration: For a distance of 
twenty-seven miles charge for twenty-five miles, for a distance of twenty-eight 
miles charge for thirty miles. 

4. When freight is transported any distance greater than one hundred miles, if 
the mileage does not end in 0, then next ten (10) miles group above sliall govern 
the rate. Illustration: For one hundred and twenty-one miles charge for one 
hundred and thirty. 

5. For distance under twenty miles or over two hundred and fifty miles, a re- 
duction of rates may be made without making a change at all stations short of 
two hundred and fifty miles: Provided, hoicevcr, that Avhen any railroad shall 
make a reduction of rates for distances over two hundred and fifty miles, the 
same shall apply to similar distances on all the roads controlled by the same 
company, and in no case shall more be charged for a less than a greater distance. 

Regulations Concerning Freight Rates. 

6. The freight rates prescribed by the Commission are maximum rates, which 
shall not be transcended by the railroads. They may carry, however, at less than 
the prescribed rates: Provided, that if they carry for less for one person, they 
shall for the like service carry for the same lessened rate for all persons except 
as mentioned hereafter; and if they adopt less freight rates from one station, 
they shall make a reduction of the same per cent, at all stations along the line 
of the road so as to make no unjust discrimination as against any person or

locality. But when there are between any two points in this State two or more 
competing roads not under the same management or in the same system, then the 
longer line or lines, in order to give said points the benefit of competition, may 
reduce the rates between said two points below the standard tariff, without mak- 
ing a corresponding reduction at all stations along the lines of said roads : Pro- 
vided, said reduction shall not make the rates less than the standard tariff rates 
for the shortest line between said points: Provided further, that before taking 
effect, the proposed change of rates shall be submitted to and approved by the 
Commission. When any special rate is made it shall be submitted to the Com- 
mission for approval, and such special rates shall not be withdrawn without thirty 
days' notice to the Commission. 

7. The rates charged for freight service by regular passenger trains may be 
one and a half times that for first-class freight by ordinary freight trains. 

8. No railroad company shall, by reason of any contract with any express, or 
other company, decline or refuse to act as a common carrier, to transport any 
article proper for transportation by the train for which it is offered. 

9. Minimum charge for single shipments. See Circular No. 30. 

10. No railroad company doing business in this State shall permit a blockade 
of any class of freignts on account of any arrangement existing between it and 
other railroad companies as to the transportation of freight according to per- 
centage or otherwise. 

11. There shall be no secret reduction of rates, nor shall any bonus be given, 
or any rebate paid to any person, but the rates shall be uniform to all, and 
public. 

12. The rates specified for ores, sand, clay, rough stone, common brick, bone, 
lumber, shingles, laths, staves, empty barrels, wood, straw, shucks, hay, fodder, 
corn in ear, tan-bark, turpentine, rosin, tar, household goods, are maximum rates, 
but the roads are left free to reduce them at discretion, and all such rates are 
exempt from the operation of Rule 6. All complaints as to such rates will, on 
presentation, be duly considered. 

13. When railroad companies are required to load or unload car-load shipments 
of classes L, M, N, and P, or to load car-load shipments of naval stores, the 
actual cost of such service shall be paid by shippers. 

14. Extra Handling. — The charge for handling extra heavy articles, may be as 
follows, viz. : 

Under 2,000 pounds, no charge for extra handling.

17. In no case shall the amount collected on L. C. L. shipments exceed the 
charge per car-load for the same class of goods. 

18. Railroad companies are not required to receive cotton or other merchan- 
dise and warehouse the same unless the articles offered are in good shipping con- 
dition, well prepared by the shipper with proper packing and intelligent, plain 
marking, and accompanied with orders for immediate shipping. 

19. Car-load Rates apply to a shipment of a car-load or more made by one 
shipper, at one time, to one and the same point of delivery, to the same con- 
signee.

21. In cases in which the classification of any article is lowered by a percent- 
age, railroad companies which are allowed an increase on the standard tariff 
shall apply the increase allowed to the reduced classification; but in cases in 
which the classification of any article is raised by percentage, railroad companies 



RULES OF PEACTICE. 59 

which are allowed an increase on the standard tariff shall not apply said increase 
to the already increased classification, but only to the standard tariff. 

22. When any article is too bulky to put in a box-car, it shall be subject to 
special contract. 

23. A ton of all articles is 2,000 pounds. A car-load is 20,000 pounds unless 
otherwise specified. For loads above 20,000 pounds, pro rate at car-load rates 
charged. A car-load of green wood is eight cords. A car-load of dry wood is 
nine cords. A car-load of lumber (and all articles embraced in lumber) is 24,000 
pounds. A car-load of any article enumerated in Class P, except wood and lum- 
ber and articles included in lumber, is 25,000 pounds, shippers to load and un- 
load: Provided, that when a car is loaded over its marked capacity by the 
shipper, the railroad companies are left free to charge for the excess a rate that 
will effectually stop a practice fraught with so much danger to life and property. 

24. The regulations of the railroads as to demurrage or detention of cars are 
matters of police, with which the Commission will only interfere upon complaint 
of abuse. 

25. All roads under the same or different management shall make just and 
reasonable rates for switching and exchange of business at connecting points. 
Rates now in force are' continued. Any proposed change must first be submitted 
to the Commission. Any charge now in force and shown to work a hardship will 
be corrected. 

26. All depots situated in incorporated towns and cities in this State must be 
kept open each day (Sundays excepted) for the receiving and delivery of freight, 
as follows: From April 1 to September 30, between the hours of 7 A. M. and 
6 P. M. From October 1 to March 31, 7:30 A. M. and 5 o'clock P. M., with an 
intermission in each case of one hour, from 12 o'clock M. to 1 o'clock P. M. 

27. Railroad companies whose lines do not exceed ten miles in length may 
charge from any point on their road the rates prescribed for ten miles. 

28. On all shipments of freights not governed by Rule 1, originating and ter- 
minating in this State, which shall pass over the whole or portions of two or 
more roads not under the same control the maximum rates charged on such 
shipments shall not be greater than the sum of the local rates on such freights, 
less ten (10) per cent., for the distance hauled over each road. The total rate 
thus ascertained on such freights, from the point of shipment to the point of 
destination, shall be divided in such proportions between the roads over which 
such freights pass, so as to give to each road interested in the shipment its local 
rate, less ten (10) per cent., for the distance such shipment is hauled. Nothing 
in this rule shall be construed to prevent the total of any joint rate made under 
this rule from being divided in such proportions between the roads interested 
in the same as they may agree upon, but a failure to so agree between the roads 
interested shall in no way affect the total joint rate to be charged and collected 
on, or work delay in the transportation of such freights, or be a subject of appeal 
to the Commission by the roads at interest. 

29. When railroad rates are affected by water competition the railroads may 
reduce their rates between points so affected without being required to reduce 
intermediate rates: Provided, however, that if complaint is made that such com- 
petition rates unjustly discriminate against other places or persons the commis- 
sioners will investigate and rule in each case. 



60 X. C. CORPOEATION COMMISSION. 

30. Whenever any goods or articles of freight of any kind shall be received by 
any common carrier in this State to be delivered to any consignee in this State, 
and a portion of same shall not have been received at the place of destination, the 
carrier shall not demand any part of the charges for freight or transportation 
due for such portion of the shipment as shall not have reached the place of desti- 
nation. And in case of loss, damage or overcharge of such freight, if the con- 
signee present his bill of lading and the original invoice to the agent of the 
company at place of destination of such goods within thirty days after notice of 
the loss, damage or overcharge, and said company fails or neglects to deliver to 
the con'signee the goods lost or damaged in good order, or refund any overcharge 
for thirty days after such notice, then ^ich company shall be liable for the value 
of such goods lost or damaged or overcharged. The carrier shall be required to 
deliver to the consignee such portion of the consignment as shall have been 
received, upon the payment or tender of freight charges due upon such portion, as 
provided by chapter 495, Laws 1893. 

31. No common carrier shall, for any cause, subject any article of freight to 
unreasonable delay in receiving, delivering or forwarding the same to its destina- 
tion. 

32. When a shipment is offered at a point where there are two routes over 
connecting lines to destination it shall be the duty of the railroad company 
making shipment to forward same by the shortest route, unless the rate charged 
over the longer route does not exceed that of the shorter, or unless otherwise 
ordered by the shipper. 

33. A charge of no more than two dollars per car will be allowed for switching 
or transferring a car from any point on any road to any connecting road or ware- 
house within a space of one mile from starting point, over one and not more than 
two miles, three dollars; over two miles and not over three miles, four dollars, 
without regard to weight or contents. 

34. When in the transfer of a car between said points it is necessary to pass 
over the line of any intermediate road or roads, the maximum charge of two, three 
or four dollars, as the case may be, shall be equitably divided between the roads 
at interest. 

35. When a charge is made for the transfer of loaded cars between said points 
no additional charge shall be made for the delivery or return of the empty cars. 

36. All specials less than our standard rates heretofore granted by carriers 
within the jurisdiction of the Commission, and which do not conflict with the law 
preventing unjust discrimination, until further orders, will be enforced. 

Posting Tariffs. 

37. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Carolina 
shall post, and keep posted, at each of its respective stations in a conspicuous 
place a copy of the schedules of freight and passenger rates prescribed for said 
road by the Commission, together with a copy of the commissioners' classification, 
and a table of distances between stations, giving name of each station. And when 
any change in said schedule of rates or classification is made, either by the Com- 
mission or by any railroad company, a copy of said change shall be immediately 
furnished the office of the commissioners and shall also be posted in the same 
manner as the above. 



RULES OF PKACTICE. 61 

38. The rates prescribed by the Commission shall (except in cases specified) 
apply in either direction. 

EXPLANATORY NOTES. 

In the '"Commissioners' Standard Freight Tariff," under the class opposite to 
the distance, if it ends in (and if not, then opposite the next greater distance), 
will be found the rate required. 

Example: To find the rate for 247 miles on a box of clothing weighing 100 
pounds, opposite the word "clothing" in the classification is seen its class, 1 ; in 
the freight tariff, under Class 1, opposite the next greater distance, 250 miles, is 
seen the rate, 65 cents; in the column "miles," 5 signifies five miles or under; 20, 
twenty miles or over fifteen, and so on.

RULES FOR COMPUTING FRACTIONS. 

When any rate in any class in the Standard Tariff is raised or lowered by a 
per cent., the following rules must be observed: 

First. — If the rate thus raised or lowered is in either of classes C, D, F, J or K, 
the fraction of a half cent must be retained, as the following examples will 
indicate: 

Ex. 1. — Standard rate 6.5 

25 per cent, added 1.6 

Total 8.1 

From which deduct fraction, leaving desired rate of 8 cents. 

Ex. 2. — Standard rate 9.5 

20 per cent, added 1.9 

Total 11.4 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 11.5 cents. 

Ex. 3.— Standard rate 8. 

20 per cent, added 1.6 

Total 9.6 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 9.5 cents. 



62 N. C. COBPOEATION" COMMISSIOISr. 

Ex. 4. — Standard rate 5.5 

25 per cent, added 1.3 

Total 6.8 

Adding a unit instead of a fraction, the desired rate is 7 cents. 

Second. — If the rate thus raised or lowered be in any other class than those 
already mentioned, omit fraction of less than half a cent and estimate half a 
cent or more as one cent, thus: 

Ex. 1.— Standard rate 17. 

20 per cent, added 3.4 

Total 20.4 

Deducting the fraction, the desired rate is 20 cents. 

Ex. 2. — Standard rate 18. 

20 per cent, added 3.6 

Total 21.6 

Estimating the fraction as a unit, the desired rate is 22 cents. 

Third. — In making reductions, observe the same manner of placing figures 
before deducting the percentage. 

Narrow-gauge railroads, in fixing rates on all freights where a rate per car- 
load is given, will count 15,000 pounds for a car-load, and estimate their charge 
pro rata with rate allowed on standard gauge. 

RULES GOVERNING ERECTION AND LOCATION OF DEPOTS. 

First. — From and after Wednesday, the 26th day of April, 1899, no change of 
freight or passenger depots or flag stations from their present location, nor the 
suspension of the sale of tickets, or the receiving or forwarding of freights from 
stations now in use for such purposes, will be permitted without the consent of 
this Commission published in accordance with law. 

Second. — Application for the location of depots and the construction of depot 
buildings must be filed in the North Carolina Corporation Commission office, with 
all information needed for a full and proper understanding of all interests to be 
affected thereby, 

RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION 
OF LIVE STOCK. 

The weights given below are estimated and not actual, and are used simply to 
get the rating on live stock. To illustrate: One horse, mule or horned animal 
is estimated at the same rate as 2,000 pounds of any kind of second-class freight 
at carrier's risk and fourth-class at owner's risk. Therefore, the freight charges 
for fifty miles on one horse, mule or horned animal is the same as on 2,000

The rates on live stock as given in this tariff are based on the following maxi- 
mum valuations: 

Horses and mules not over $120.00 each. 

Horned cattle not over 50.00 each. 

Stallions, jacks and bulls not over 150.00 each. 

Fat hogs and fat calves not over 15.00 each. 

Lambs, stock hoofs, stock calves, not over 5.00 each. 



Race horses, stallions, jacks, bulls and other high-priced animals, when ship- 
pers are not willing to have the same transported at above valuations, will be 
taken only at the following rates on valuation given: 

Value from $150.00 to $400.00 add to regular rate 30 per cent. 
Value from $400.00 to $600.00 add to regular rate 40 per cent. 
Value from $600.00 to $800.00 add to regular rate 60 per cent. 
Value from $800.00 to $1,000.00 add to regular rate 100 per cent. 
Over $1,000 subject to special rate by contract. 

Live stock will be taken at the released or owner's risk rate only when contract 
is executed by shipper and station agent. 

Mixed shipment of cattle, hogs, lambs, etc., will be taken in car-loads at car- 
load rates for cattle, but carrier will be released from damage to animals caused 
by their own acts, or to each other, and from escape, if not haltered, suffocation, 
exhaustion from heat or cold. 

Sucking calves accompanying cows will be charged for at rate for single calves. 

Sucking colts accompanying mares will be charged for at double the rate for 
single calves. 

The word "calves" used in these rules and regulations applies only to calves 
under nine months old; and the words "yearling cattle" to cattle over nine 
months and under eighteen months old. 

Pigs, hogs, calves, etc., boxed, crated, or in portable pens, taken at actual 
weight, carrier's risk, first-class; owner's risk, second-class. 

In no case shall the charge for less than a car-load of live stock exceed the 
charsre for a car-load. 



64 N. C. COKPOKATIOlSr COMMISSION. 

Shippers will be expected to feed, water and care for their stock at their own 
expense. When food is furnished by carrier, a charge will be made for the same 
and collected from consignee. 

One, two or three cars of live stock will entitle the owner or his agent to be 
carried free to point of destination of consignment, on the train with the stock 
to care for the same. Four to seven cars inclusive, belonging to one owner, two 
men in charge, and eight cars or more belonging to one owner, three men in 
charge, which number is the maximum number of attendants that will be carried 
free for one shipment. 
• Return transportation not given to owners, agents or attendants.

consignment may remain in the custody of the carrier of one cent per hundred 
pounds per day, with minimum charge of five cents for any one package or lot for 
any one consignee, may be made; but not more than one dollar per day for any 
one consignment not in excess of a car-load. 

RULE III. 

All car-load freight taking track delivery and such as is to be unloaded by con- 
signee, which is not unloaded from cars containing same within forty-eight hours 
(not including Sundays and legal holidays) after the car or cars are placed acces- 
sible for unloading, may be subject to a charge of one dollar per car for each day 
or fraction of a day that said car or cars remain loaded: Provided, however, that

RULE IV. 

When consignors ship goods consigned to themselves or order, it shall be the 
duty of the railroad company to give legal notice to such consignees or persons

G6 N". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

to whom shipping directions order delivery. This notice may be addressed by 
mail to the consignee at point of delivery, and demurrage will begin as in other 
cases of notice by mail; and the mailing of such notice shall be sufficient notice in 
such cases, whether the consignee actually received the same or not. ' 

RULE V. 

The time allowed for removing freight before storage or demurrage charges 
apply will be computed from 7 o'clock A. M. of the day following date of notice 
(Sundays and legal holidays excepted). 

RULE VI. 

A consignee living more than five (5) miles from the depot, and Avhose freight 
is destined to his residence or place of business so located, shall not be subject to 
storage or demurrage charges allowed in the above rules until a sufficient time 
has elapsed after notice for said consignee to remove said goods by the exercise 
of due diligence: Provided, that in the delivery of car-load freight railroads will 
not be required in any case to hold freight free of demurrage for a longer period 
than five (5) days after notice, except as otherwise provided in Rule 11. 

RULE VII. 

Where, upon the request of an intending shipper, the railroad company places a 
car or cars at a reasonably accessible point on its team tracks or on a private 
track designated by the shipper, free loading time shall expire forty-eight hours 
(not including Sundays or legal holidays) from the time such car or cars are so 
placed; and thereafter a demurrage charge of not more than one dollar per car 
per day or fraction of a day may be assessed and collected on all such cars as 
luive not been tendered to the railroad company with shipping instructions. 

RULE VIII.

road company may require the payment of freight before delivery. 

RULE IX. 

Where a shipper makes application in writing for a car or cars to be loaded 
with any kind of freight, and the railroad company fails to furnish same within 
four days from 7 o'clock A. M. next day after such application, such railroad com- 
pany so offending shall forfeit and pay to the shipper applying the sum of one 
dollar per car per day for each day or fraction of a day's delay after the expira- 
tion of free time: Provided the shipper makes demand therefor in writing within 
thirty days thereafter. The railroad companies may require applicant to deposit 
two dollars for each car so demanded. This money may be retained as a forfeit 
to the railroad company in case the car is not loaded, to pay trackage; if the car 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 67 

is loaded, then the said two dollars shall be refunded to the shipper with the bill 
of lading. 

RULE X. 

Whenever shipments have been received by any railroad company, such ship- 
ments destined to stations Avithin a distance of fifty miles from starting point

ply in ascertaining- the weight 
on beer in car-loads containing 
ice or other packing: 

The car of beer shall be 
weighed on track scales at 
originating point, and, when 
iced in transit, also at destina- 
tion. The weight of the beer 
shall be ascertained by taking 
a count of the packages con- 
tained in the car, computed at 
the estimated weights per 
package as shown in the clas- 
sification, when the difference 
between the estimated weight 
and the scale weight does 
not amount to 4,000 pounds. 
Should the difference be- 
tween the scale weight and 
the estimated weight be more 
than 4,000 pounds, said differ- 
ence shall be charged for at 
the rate applicable on beer. 

If, on weighing the car at 
destination, there is found to 
be a greater difference than 
4,000 pounds 'allowed for ice 
and packing) between the 
scale weight at destination 
and the billed weight, said 
difference shall be charged for 
at the rate applicable on beer.

Rules governing transportation of high explosives 

High explosives, such as atlas, hercules, giant, 
dittmar, commercial setna, hecla and other nitro- 
glycerine powders. Dynamite, nitro-glycerine, gly- 
noin oil, nitroleum, blasting oil, nitrated oil or pow- 
der, mixed with any such oil or fibre, saturated with 
any such articles or substances, will be received for 
transportation only at steamship or railroad compa- 
nies' option only under the following conditions : 

First.— Shipments to be packed in strongboxes, 
not too large to be readily handled by one person, 
and each package to be plainly marked "Explosive" 
"Dangerous," on top and on one side or on one end. 

Second. — It is understood that in these articles 
the nitro-glycerine is thoroughly absorbed in char- 
coal, sawdust, infusorial earth, wood fibre, carbonate 
of magnesia, or other similar substances, and that 
the amount of the nitro-glycerine is such that the 
temperature on the hottest summer day will not 
occasion any leakage; also that the powder formed 
by that absorbent material and the nitro-glycerine is 
always made up into cartridges and never put into 
the boxes in bulk. Should any package show out- 
ward signs of any oily stain, or other indication that 
absorption is not perfect, or that the amount of 
nitro-glycerine is greater than the absorbent can 
carry, the packages must be refused in every in- 
stance and must not be allowed to remain on the 
property of the carrier. 

Third. — Nitrate or other explosive preparations 
not in accordance with above specifications (except 



ordinary black powder) will in no case be received 
for shipment. 

Fourth.— Shipments must be so loaded that 
boxes will lie bottom side down, it being understood 
that the cartridges are so placed in the boxes that 
they will lie on their sides and never on their ends 
when so loaded. The boxes must be so placed in car 
that they can not fall to the floor under any circum- 
stances. 

Fifth.— Shipments of common black powder 
may be received if packed in good, substantial iron 
or wooden kegs, packages not to exceed one hundred 
and fifty pounds in weight, unless for export, when 
larger packages will be received. 

Sixth. — In no case will percussion caps explod- 
ers, safety squibs, fulminators, friction matches, or 
any other article of like nature be loaded in same car 
with any of the above explosives. There can not be 
too great care exercised in this matter. 

Seventh.— Safety-fuse will be received for ship- 
ment at any time it is offered and the restrictions in 
regard to shipping powder do not apply to it. 

Eighth.— As special powder cars are not in 
general service among roads of this Association, 
agents must know that none of the above explosive 
substances are loaded at their stations in old cars, 
having loose boards or cracks in the roof or sides. 
Cars for carrying these explosives must be first- 
class in every respect; must be tight everywhere, 
and must have doors that can be closely shut, leav- 



130 



N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



Rules governing transportation of high explosives— Continued. 



ing no cracks for sparks to get in. When explosives 
are carried in full car-loads, the doors must be 
stripped, except when the cars are equipped with 
the new Wagner car doors, which nnust never be 
stripped. Agents must refuse to receive from con- 
necting lines cars loaded with explosives, unless the 
requirements of this section have been complied 
with. 

Ninth.— Every car containing any of the above 
explosive substances, either full car-load or small 
package, must be plainly marked on both sides 
"Powder — Handle Carefully," so that those having 
charge of it will not do anything ignorantly to in- 
cur danger. This should be done by the shipper of 
full car-loads, and by the agent when packages are 
loaded in car at his station. Cars containing explo- 
sives received from connecting lines, if not marked 
when received, must be marked by the agent at the 



connecting point. Agents will be held strictly re- 
sponsible that no car containing explosives leaves 
their stations until it is properly marked. 

Tenth. — Agents must notify conductors when- 
ever a car containing explosives is to be taken from 
their stations; and conductors must not take from 
any station or siding any car known to contain ex- 
plosive substance unless Rules Eight and Nine have 
been complied with, and such cars must be placed 
in their train as near the middle as possible. 

Eleventh.— Agents should notify all the ship- 
pers in their neighborhood of these requirements.

weight 24,000 pounds. When in tank cars, minimum 
C. L. weight will be the full capacity of the tank, 
the contents of the tank to be computed at six and 
four-tenths pounds per gallon, subject to a minimum 
weight of 20.000 pounds. When in barrels or half-

per mile run each way, and will return the empty 
tank to point of shipment without charge. 

Shipments of above articles at rates authorized 
are entirely at owner's risk of leakage and loss or 
damage by fire. 

Petroleum and its products in tank cars will be 
delivered only when consigned to parties at points 
at which they have proper unloading and storage 
facilities; and when shipments in tarik cars are con- 
signed to parties who have not such facilities the 
shipments will be returned to the shippers at their 
risk and expense.

N. C. CORPORATION" COMMISSION. 



Cotton-seed oil, in barrels, governed by the following rules, viz.: 



First.— Inasmuch as the gross tare and net weight 
of each barrel is plainly marked on the head of the 
barrel, when shipments are loaded at the mills 
agents at shipping points will require shippers to 
load marked head up, ascertaining the gross weight 
from each barrel and billing accordingly. 

Second. — In cases where shippers fail to so load, 
agents will carefully weigh on track scales and bill 
at weight so ascertained. 

Third.— When shipments are hauled to depots, 
the gross weight must be ascertained from each 
barrel. 



I 



Fourth.— In cases where billing fails to show .^ 
shipments to have been weighed at point of origin " 
or in transit, receiving lines must in all cases bill at 
weights ascertained in accordance with Rules 1 and 2. 

If there are no track scales at the junction points, 
weights must be ascertained at destination. By 
destination is meant the point where final delivery 
is effected or delivery is made to connecting lines at 
the gateways of this association. 

Fifth.— The minimum C. L. weight of cotton-seed 
oil in barrels will be 24,000 pounds.

EXPRESS FREIGHT CLASSIFICATION. 



183 



Express Freight Classification 



RULES. 



1. Graduated rates apply to matter weighing- 
less than 100 pounds when the rate is under $2.00 
(I) per 100 pounds and to matter weighing less 
than 50 pounds when the rate is S2.00 (I) or more 
per 100 pounds. Example: — Between points 
where the rate per 100 pounds is $1.75 (H) a box 
weighing 73 pounds must be charged for at the 
graduated rate under ■tfl.75 (H), which makes the 
proper charges on "over 70 to 75 pounds " $1.50. 

Packages exceeding 7 pounds carried by more 
than one company, graduated for each company 
unless otherwise instructed. 

2. When the rate between any two points is 
not given in the graduated rates, use the next 
higher rate for making price, but do not charge 
more than for 100 pounds at the actual rate. 
Example:— The correct charge for 75 pounds at 
80 cents per 100 pounds would be 80 cents, and not 
$1.00 according to the graduate on 75 pounds at 
$1.00. If the rate exceeds $20.00 (CO) per 100 
pounds, charge pound rates, but never less than 
$20.00 (CO graduated rate for same weight. 

3. When the rate per 100 pounds is $2.00 (I) or 
more, charge pound rates for 50 pounds or over; 
but the charge for less than 50 pounds in weight 
must not be greater than the charge for 50 pounds. 
If less than $2.00 d) per 100 pounds, charge 
graduated rates. 

Two or more packages weighing each 20 pounds 
or over forwarded by one shipper at the same time 
to one consignee may be charged for on the aggre- 
gate weight as above. 

Packages weighing less than 20 pounds each, 
shipped as in the foregoing section, may be aggre- 
gated, provided they are estimated and charged 
for as weighing 20 pounds each. Actual weight 
only must be entered on the way-bill. 

If articles of different classes are aggregated, 
the charge must be made at the rate applying to 
the highest class. 

To properly carry out the above provisions in 
regard to aggregating the weights and charges on 
two or more packages sent by one shipper to one 
consignee, receiving clerks and wapon men are 
hereby instructed that in all cases when two or 
more articles are shipped at the same time to one 
address, to mark distinctly on each and every 
article the number receipted for and the hour of 
the day, thus: 3 packages 11 a. m., 2 packages 
4 p. m. 

All matter must be charged for at actual gross 
weight at the time of shipment, unless otherwise 
specially provided for. Estimated weights on 
shipments usually made with ice are only to be 
applied when ice is used. When no ice is used 
gross weights must be charged. 

4. Extra Rate Charges.— On matter subject 
to extra rate, as one and one-half or double rate, 
find graduated rate according to tariff, and then 
add one-half, or double it, as required. Example:— 
If a package weighs 25 pounds rated at double 
rate, and the rate to destination is $1.00 (E) per 
100 pounds, the charge for 20 to 25 pounds is 50 
cents; double this, Si. 00 is the proper amount. 

5. Valuation Charges.— When the value of 
any merchandise shipment (C. O. D. or otherwise) 
exceeds $5 00, the following additional charge 
must be made on value: (Charge for value whether 
insured or not). 

When merchandise rate is $1.00 or less per 100 
pounds, 5 cents for each $100 value or fraction 
thereof. 



When merchandise rate exceeds $1.00 and not 
more than $3.00 per 100 pounds, 10 cents for each 
tlOO value or fraction thereof. 

When merchandise rate exceeds $3.00 and not 
more than $8.00 per 100 pounds, 15 cents for each 
$100 value or fraction thereof. 

When merchandise rate exceeds $8.00 per 100 
pounds, 20 cents for each $100 value or fraction 
thereof. 

These rates must not be applied to shipments of 
money or bonds, being intended to apply only to 
packages or shipments of merchandise, jewelry 
and valuable papers. 

The charges for valuation above given are to be 
made on the through rate whether carried by one 
or more companies, and in the latter case are to be 
divided between the companies carrying on the 
same basis as said companies divide the trans- 
portation charges, except as noted below. 

7. C. O. D. MATTER.-The letters " C. O. D." 
and amount to be collected must be plainly marked 
upon each article, with which a bill is sent to be 
collected on delivery, and a similar entry made 
upon the way-bill. If shipper requires collection 
of charges for return of money, the C. O. D. enve- 
lope and package must be plainly marked " C. O. 
D. $ and return charges " and so way-billed. 

Allow examination of C. O. D. matter only upon 
written authority of shipper endorsed by agent at 
shipping point. When such authority is endorsed 
on the transfer envelope, it shall also be accepted. 
Such endorsement not to be made until shippers 
sign an agreement releasing the company from all 
loss incident to such examination. 

All orders to deliver C. O. D. goods without col- 
lecting C. O. D. must have the approval of the 
' agent of the company at the shipping point. 

When C. O. D. matter is, by order of shipper, 
through the agent at point of shipment, delivered 
without collecting, return the C. O. D. bill and 
envelope way-bill free. 

If C. O. D. matter is refused, or can not be de- 
livered, the shipper must be immediately notified, 
and if not disposed of within thirty days after 
such notice, it may be returned subject to charges 
both ways. 

C. O. D. matter, and paid C. O, D.'s returned to 
shipper, must take same route and pass through 
the hands of same company or companies as when 
originally forwarded. 

C. O. D.'s AND Collections Between the 
United States and Other Countries.— Ship- 
pers desiring currency or coin different from that 
current where collection is to be made must write 
their instructions plainly on the C. O. D. bill or 
I collection. 

8. Give a receipt of the prescribed form for all 
matter received without regard to the distance to 

I be carried. Always ask shippers to declare the 
t value, and when given insert it in the receipt, 
I mark it on the package and enter amount on the 

way-bill. If shippers refuse to state value, write 
' or stamp on the receipt "value asked and not 

given." When received at owner's risk, write or 

stamp on face of receipt " at owner's risk." 
Receive stove and other fragile castings, fire- 

brick,and emery wheels at owner's risk only. 

9. Require prepayment or guarantee of charges 
for, and so way-bill, old valises, hand-bags, bun- 

I dies of blankets, seeds, cuttings, shrubbery, 
plants, samples, medicines, and for all matter 
I evidently not worth charges.

DECISIONS 



AND 



ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS 



R. A. DEAL vs. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Complaint of overcharge on a shipment of roller cards between Wilkesboro, 
N. C, and Atlanta, Ga. It appearing that the shipment was one of interstate com- 
merce and without the jurisdiction of the Commission, case was dismissed. 



SOUTHERN RAILWAY to THE COMMISSION. 

This was an application on the part of petitioning company asking that the 
Commission approve the Southern Classification of freight instead of using 
classification now used in North Carolina. Petitioners alleged that the present 
Southern Classification was the result of a great deal of careful consideration, 
based not only on the views of the individual lines representing the Southern 
Classification, but also on arguments made by a great many shippers at different 
times; that the Classification Committee represented the entire South, both east 
and west, and that they were assisted by statements and statistics prepared by 
shippers; that this resulted in a simplification of the wording of the classification 
and that the Southern Classification was the best arraeiged classification in the 
United States. The Commission, after careful consideration and comparison of 
the North Carolina Classification with the Southern Classification, found that 
in adopting the Southern Classification it would change the freight rates mate- 
rially in North Carolina, making them on a much higher basis. The petition was, 
therefore, denied. 



J. W. FINCH & SON vs. SOUTHERN RAILW^AY COMPANY. 

Complaint of delay in a shipment of a car of fertilizer between Lexington, 
N. C, and Winston, N. C. Adjusted. 



SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY to THE COMMISSION. 

This was an application on the part of petitioner asking for a definition of the 
term "nested" used in the classification of freight. The Commission ruled that 
the term "nested" meant two or more articles packed together and not three or 
more, as contended by petitioner.

tariff allowed defendant company to charge, case was dismissed. 



NORTH CAROLINA CORPORATION COMMISSION vs. SEABOARD 
AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

This was a reply to a call for a report of the condition of the road-bed of the 
Carolina Central Railroad between Hamlet and Wilmington. Defendant, through 
Superintendent A. W. Towsley, answered as follows: "It is my understanding 
from parties who have been connected with this Division for several years that 
the C. C. East Division is now in better condition than it has been for the 
past ten or twelve years. There is some considerable ordinary maintenance work 
necessary and this is being given attention as fast as we can get labor to cover. 
We are also replacing worn-out angle bars and bolts as fast as we can get them 
from the manufacturers." 



MONROE vs. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

Claim for damage on account of shortage in a shipment of freight. Dismissed 
on account of failure of complainant to furnish bill of lading. 



SUMRELL & McCOY vs. ATLANTIC AND NORTH CAROLINA 
RAILROAD COMPANY. 

Complainant in this case alleged an excessive freight was charged on a package 
shipment weighing less than 100 pounds. Complainant alleged further that 
defendant railroad company, with other railroad companies, on interstate ship- 
ments, had adopted a rule as follows: "The minimum charge on a single shipment 
of one class, classified first-class or lower, shall be 100 pounds at the class or 
commodity rate to which it belongs." It appearing that this was an interstate 
shipment and the Commission was without jurisdiction to control the rates, case 
was dismissed.

ABERDEEN AND ASHBORO RAILROAD COMPANY to THE COMMISSION. 

This was an application on part of petitioner asking to be exempt from Rule 
No. 36 of the Commission, being Storage and Demurrage Rules, Time Limit for 
Placing of Cars and Delivery of Freight. Petitioning company alleged that their 
road was a lumber road and that 95 per cent, of all the shipments were for points 
beyond its own line, and should not be expected to own cars for all of its busi- 
ness; that to furnish all of the cars needed for prompt movement of the business, 
u greater part of which moved beyond the limits of the State, would call for an 
investment in cars exceeding the total capital stock and bonded debt of the road. 
The petition, after careful consideration of the Commission, was denied. 



M. 0. SHERRILL vs. SOUTHERN EXPRESS COMPANY. 

Claim for damage to the amount of $5 for one set of North Carolina Regimental 
Histories shipped to Newark, N. J., which had never reached destination. Claim 
paid and case dismissed.

redress. ■ ^ 



SLOCOMB vs. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY. 

Complainant alleged in this case that defendant had changed its freight rate 
on rosin between Fayetteville and Winston without giving proper notice. Upon 
investigation, it appearing by answer of defendant that the rates complained of 
had not been changed and that complainant was in error, case was dismissed. 



CITIZENS OF PILOT MOUNTAIN to THE COMMISSION. 

This was an application on the part of the citizens of Pilot Mountain asking 
for additional siding facilities for the handling of freight at that place. Defend- 
ants, in answer to the complaint, agreed to build additional side-track 376 feet 
long, which was satisfactory to the petitioners.

COMPANY, THE SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

A petition for union passenger station at Durham was filed on February 17, 
1903, as follows: 

"To the Honorable the Corporation Commission of the State of North Carolina: 

''Your petitioners respectfully show : 

"(1) That the city of Durham is a municipal corporation, duly chartered and 
organized, and maintains a city government within the county of Durham in said 
State, and has a population of about twenty thousand or more people. 

"(2) That the Southern Railway Company, the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
Compan}^ and the Norfolk and Western Railway Company are railroads duly 
incorporated, doing business in this State as common carriers of passengers and 
freight, and they enter into the corporate limits of the city of Durham. 

"(3) That each one of said railroad companies now has a separate depot or 
passenger station in said city, but neither has a depot or station adequate, con- 
venient or offering suitable accommodation for the traveling public. 



204 X. C. CORPOEATION COMMISSION. 

"(4) That said railroad companies now have tracks running very near to each 
other, and have actual physical connection in said city, and it is entirely practi- 
cable for them to have one common or union passenger depot in said cit}^ for the 
accommodation and convenience of the traveling public. 

"(5) That all of said companies do a good business in said city, and receive 
large revenues from their stations located therein. 

"Wherefore your petitioners pray the Corporation Commission to require said 
railroad companies to have one common or union passenger depot in said city for 
the accommodation, security and convenience of the traveling public commensu- 
rate with the business and revenues of said companies, and to immediately unite 
in the joint undertaking and expense of erecting, constructing and maintaining 
the same upon such terms, regulations, provisions and conditions as your honor- 
able body may prescribe." 

Order, 

"The petition in this cause was filed on the 17th day of February, 1903, and 
notice was given to the defendants and the hearing was continued from time to 
time until Tuesday, the 7th day of July, 1903, when it was taken up for hearing 
at the office of the Corporation Commission in the city of Raleigh. Pending the 
hearing of evidence in the cause the Commission adjourned to meet again on the 
17th day of July, 1903, at 10 o'clock A. M., in the city of Durham, when and 
Avhere the Commission met and the taking of evidence was completed. After 
having heard the evidence and viewed the situation in the city of Durham and 
heard the contention of counsel representing the petitioners, the Southern Railway 
Company and the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company, and having considered the 
admissions made of record, the Corporation Commission is of the opinion, and 
finds as a fact, that the location and building of a union passenger depot for the 
security, accommodation and convenience of the traveling public, using the 
Southern Railway, the Seaboard Air Line Railway and the Norfolk and Western 
Railway, is practicable, and in the judgment of the Corporation Commission the 
necessities of the case require that said railway companies (which it is admitted 
enter the city of Durham) have one common or union passenger depot; and it is 
further found as a fact that at the time of the filing of the petition in this cause 
neither one of said railway companies had, or now has, a depot adequate, con- 
venient and offering suitable accommodations for the traveling public. It is 
therefore ordered and required by the Corporation Commission that the railway 
companies above named erect and build one common or union passenger depot for 
the traveling public at a point in the city of Durham on what is designated in 
the evidence as the old market-house site, at some point between Roxboro street 
and Mangum street, and that said lailway companies unite in the joint under- 
taking and expense of erecting, constructing and maintaining a union passenger 
depot. And this cause is continued until the 1.5th day of August, 1903, at the 
office of the Corporation Commission in the city of Raleigh, for the purpose of 
allowing the said laihvay companies to suggest plans, specifications, dimensions 
and the exact location of said depot, to be submitted to the Corporation Commis- 
sion, in its office at the city of Raleigh, at which time and place, or as soon there- 
after as possible, the Corporation Commission Avill designate the exact location, 
dimensions and plans and specifications for building said union passenger depot, 
and prescribe terms, regulations, provisions and conditions, and make such other 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 205 



orders as may be required. The said railway companies are further directed to 

i file their plans, specifications and suggestions with the Clerk of the Corporation 

Commission." 

Hearing, August 15, 1903. 

"It is ordered by the Commission, that union passenger depot at Durham be 
located north of the jiresent main line of the Southern Railway tracks, with 
entrance or exit on or near Church street, leaving sufficient space between south 
platform of depot building and main line to permit laying tracks for entry of 
roads and platform for accommodation of passengers. 

"Further, that the plans submitted by the Southern Railway be adopted, sub- 
ject to such changes as may be found necessary or desirable by the Corporation 
Commission at a meeting to be held in Raleigh on the r2th day of September, 
1903. Work to begin within sixty days. 

"The Clerk of the Commission will immediately furnish each of the respondents 
with copy of this order." 

Hearing, September 14, 1903, 

"Ordered, that the plans, plot and photograph of brick building submitted by 
the Southern Railway and approved by the other respondents on September 14, 
1903, be accepted by the Corporation Commission as the plans, site and character 
of building for the union passenger depot for Durham, except the depot building 
shall be located northward from the main" line of the North Carolina Railroad, a 
distance of twelve feet further than is shown in said plans and plot ; that the 
cost of this proceeding and of this site and the building to be paid for by the 
lespondents in the following ratio: One-third of the whole cost by the Seaboard 
Air Line Railway, and one-third of the cost of the building by the Norfolk and 
Western Railway Company, and the balance of the whole cost by the Southern 
Railway Company; that work upon the union depot shall begin at once, or just 
as soon as the title to said site can be secured by condemnation proceedings or 
purchase, and pushed to completion without unnecessary delay. This order is 
based upon the stipulation made by the Southern Railway Company in writing, 
which was accepted by the Seaboard Air Line Railway, and the same by consent 
of the parties is filed as part of the record in this proceeding. And this cause 
is continued for further directions. 

"Franklin McNeill, 

"Chairman." 

Agreement Between Defendant Railroad Companies. 

"It will be conceded by the Southern Rajlway Company for itself, and so far as 
it can control, by its lessor, that if the proceedings for condemnation shall be 
continued, so far as that part of the right of way which lies between Roxboro and 
Church streets is concerned and that part which lies west of the location of the 
passenger station is concerned, that no opposition will be made by the Southern 
Railway to the use and occupation of that part immediately south of the location 
of the station occupied by track of union station, without additional cost for such 
part. This stipulation, and whatever may be done in pursuance of it, shall not 
be used by either party in the condemnation proceedings. The use of the track

as now used by the Seaboard Air Line to its freight station to continue until the 
termination in due course of the litigation now pending. 

"It is agreed that, whatever may be the result of the condemnation proceedings 
of Seaboard Air Line Railway and Southern Railway and others now pending, 
the Seaboard Air Line is to have full access to the union passenger station upon 
the track from its present line at Roxboro street.

company, as follows: "The line from Goldsboro toi Selma is laid with fifty and 
sixty pound rail; Selma to Raleigh, sixty-pound rail; Raleigh to Greensboro, sixty 
and seventy pound rail; Greensboro to Charlotte, eighty-pound rail. The road-bed

CITIZENS OF HICKORY vs. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY AND CARO- 
LINA AND NORTH-WESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

The citizens of Hickory filed a petition with the Conunission as follows: 

"'Your petitioners, the business men, manufacturers, shippers and receivers of 
freight at this point. Hickory, N. C, beg to present the following facts: 

"First. That the facilities for handling and taking care of freight is entirely 
inadequate; that the present depot was built here in 1860 and has never been 
added to or improved. Since the erection of this depot our inhabitants have 
increased from three people to thirty-five hundred. We have two large sash, blind 
and door manufacturing companies; we have the largest wagon factory in the 
South, two large furniture factories, four patent roller flour mills, with the addi- 
tion of innumerable snuill manufacturing establishments, all shipping from this 
point. We have one wholesale grocery house and thirty-three retail dry-goods, 
groceries, notions, etc. We have one collar factory, two tanneries, one cotton mill, 
one upiiolstery establishment and three foundries. , The freights received and 
shipped at this time will average over thirty thousand dollars per month. 

"We have had the question of better depot facilities up with the Southern Rail- 
vray Company for the last five years, and have sent petition after petition to the 
superintendent and general manager. 

"We, your petitioners, beg that if it is in your power that you will come to our 
assistance and give us such depot facilities as under the circumstances j'ou think 
we are entitled to. The present depot is not capable of taking care of the in- 
coming freight, and frequently we have Aaluable shipments of furniture and of 
mantels, fine dressers and fine interior trim that is shipped locally and is subject 
to. all the inclemencies of the weather, without any protection whatever. We 
trust you will do all you can to assist us." 

Defendant, through Colonel A. B. Andrews, first vice-jjvesident, in answer to this 
petition, stated: 

"The question of better de])ot facilities at Hickory has been under consideration 
and we have arranged to enlarge tlie freight depot at that point, and the work 
will be proceeded with as promptly as practicable." 

The petitioners were advised of the answer of defenchmt, and, the i)roposed 
changes not being satisfactory, the petitioners, tli rough the Hickory Board of 
Trade, filed resolutions adopted, asking, in behalf of the Board of Trade, the mer- 
chants, manufacturers and citizens generally, \hc Connnission to institute such 
proceedings in the premises as would comi)el tlie Soutliern Railway to abandon its 
present site of freight station and erect a station at such point in the city as the 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 213 

Commission might select, and asking that a day be fixed for liearing. A day was 
then fixed for hearing at Hickory, where both petitioners and defendants were 
represented. After careful consideration the following order was issued : 

"It is adjudged that the present depot facilities at Hickory for the handling of 
freights are insufficient and inadequate, and as at present operated is unsafe; it 
is therefore ordered that the Southern Railway Company and the Carolina and 
North-western Railway Company shall provide adequate and safe facilities for 
the handling of freights at Hickory, N. C, and that work to this end be begun 
within thirty davs from this date." 



CITIZENS OF ALMOND vs. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

This was a petition by the citizens of Almond, a station on the line of the Mur- 
phy Branch of defendant's road, alleging that the accommodations for freight 
were entirely inadequate for the handling of freight at that station, and asking 
that the Commission require defendant to erect a new depot of sufficient size and 
quality as to furnish security and protection for freight. The Commission served 
copy of petition on defendant company, with the request for answer. At a ses- 
sion of the Commission on December 10th, it appearing that no answer had been 
filed to the complaint, the following order was issued: '"It appearing that the 
depot accommodations are inadequate and insufficient for the handling and pro- 
tection of freight at Almond, N. C. it is directed that the Southern Railway Com- 
pany provide a depot adequate and sufficient for the proper handling of the 
freight at Almond within sixtv davs from this date." 



NORTH CAROLINA CORPORATION COMMISSION vs. SOUTHERN RAIL- 
WAY COMPANY. 

This was an investigation of the cause of accidents on the Asheville and Spar- 
tanburg Division, and also an inspection of the roads of the Asheville and Spar- 
tanburg and South Carolina and Georgia Divisions of the Southern Railway. 
Under date of August 27, 1903. the Commission received a communication from 
his Excellency Charles B. Aycock, as follows: "The frequent wrecks on the road 
from Asheville to Spartanburg, near Saluda, would seem to justify your honorable 
Board in making a thorough investigation. Complaints have reached me about 
the condition of the road, and I should be glad if you would thoroughly investi- 
gate the condition of that pait of the road which has given rise to so many acci- 
dents." The Commissioners, duiing the montli of September, made a careful 
inspection of the condition of these roads, and, under date of October 28, 1903, 
made a report of their investigation to the Governor, as follows: 

"As soon as practicable after the receipt of your favor of the 27th of August the 
Corporation Commission asked for and obtained from Southern Railway Com- 
pany the number of accidents which had occurred on the railroad from Asheville 
to Spartanburg, and the time, place and, in a brief way, the circumstances of each. 

"From this report it appears that, while there were several accidents, there 
were only two in which personal injuries were sustained. One of these occurred 
near Balfour, on Jime 12, 1903. in which H. C. Cliff, mail clerk, and J. R. Duncan, 
fireman, were injured. 



214 N". C. CORPORATION" COMMISSION, 

"The otlicr occurred near Melrose, on August 13th, in which J. H. Averill, Jr., 
and C. D. Hair, fireman, were killed, and W. B. Sherrill, brakeman, was injured, 
from which injuries he afterwards died. 

"On the 7th of September we investigated the condition of so much of said road 
as is in this State, and especially the part near Melrose, where the accident 
occurred on the 1.3th of August. We are unable to decide what was the cause of 
the accident, but we believe that it was due to the high speed at which the trains 
were running. The grade is steep down Saluda Mountain, and from the state- 
ments made by the survivors of the crew it appears that they had lost control of 
the train. 

"The derailment occurred just on a curve, and we believe the speed of the train 
alone was sufficient to have caused the wreck, if indeed it would not have inevitably 
caused it. 

"We enclose you herewith statements made by the survivors of the crew, to-wit, 
T. A. Howie, conductor; M. P. Trapp, flagman; W. C. Ward and P. A. Bishop, 
brakemen; and also a copy of the report made by Mr. A. Ramseur, division super- 
intendent, to Mr. S. J. Collins, general superintendent. 

"How the crew lost control of the train is not apparent. It appears that the 
brakes and other machinery of the train were examined at Saluda Station just 
before beginning the descent of the mountain and were found in good condition. 

"The road-bed and track were found to be in fairly good condition. We called 
upon the railroad company for a report of amount of work done on this road 
during this year, and this was furnished us October 5th. The railroad com- 
pany seems to be doing everything in their power to prevent such accidents. 

"As before remarked, the grade is steep down Saluda Mountain, In order to 
keep train under control of crew, six brakemen were kept at the top of the moun- 
tain to assist trains descending. As additional precautions, the railroad com- 
pany is now constructing two hill tracks to prevent runaway accidents. Each of 
these is 1,500 feet long, located respectively at mile-posts 33.2 and 34.7. 

"These hill tracks are connected with the main track by switches and are to be 
kept open to every train descending the mountains and to be closed to such trains 
only upon signals from them. These switches are to be operated day and night 
by a switchman employed for that purpose. If crews were to lose control of trains 
it is thought that by these means the danger of derailment would be averted. 

"The railroad company has also employed two inspectors to inspect the brakes 
and machinery of each train before descending the mountains, and a conductor, 
who is stationed at Saluda Station, to conduct trains down the mountain. 

"All of this will more fully appear from the report which we enclose herewith, 
showing the work done and in progress on said road and the amount expended 
therefor. 

"This report has been delayed by reason of the fact that we were informed that 
Colonel J. H. Averill, father of J. H. Aveiill, Jr., who was killed, probably could 
give some information in regard to the accident which occurred on the 13th of 
August. We wrote and asked him if he could give us any information, but two 
letters have brought no reply. 

"Very respectfully, 

"Your obedient servant, 

"Franklin McNeill, 

"Chairman."

COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 2lT 

Following additional precautions have been taken to prevent runaway accidents 
on Saluda Mountain: 

Two hill tracks located respectively at mile-posts 33.2 and 34.7, 1,500 feet long 
each, are now being put in; estimated cost, $3,771.88 and $5,290.88 respectively — 
$9,062.76. 

These tracks will be laid with new 80-pound steel rail, first-class cross-ties, frogs 
and switches, same as used in main line. 

One night and one day switchman will be placed at each track, to be kept there 
at all hours, and will be paid salary of $50 per month each, causing additional 
expense of $200 per month. 

We have also put on a hill conductor, who will supervise the handling of 
trains down Saluda Mountain, at a salary of $100 per month. 

One night and one day inspector at Saluda, at a salary of $50 per month each. 
These men have been put on since runaway accident which occurred on August 13, 
1903. 

Prior to that time we had located at Saluda six hill brakemen, at salary of 
$50 per month each. These will be continued in addition to the expenses above 
mentioned. 

SUMMARY. 

Rail, fastenings and tie-plates .• $ 65,278.99 

Cross-ties 16,763.25 

Ballast 14,735.58 

Bridges 2,955.77

Total $134,834.34 

In connection with the efforts being made on the part of this company to pre- 
vent accidents on Saluda Mountain, I call your particular attention to the addi- 
tional cost we will be put to in the nature of switchmen, hill conductor and 
inspectors. 

From the above enumeration you Avill note that as soon as the two hill tracks 
are completed we will have a night and day watchman at each, representing four 
men employed at $50 each per month, or $200 per month. We have also put on 
what is known as a hill conductor at $100 per month and one day and one night 
inspector at Saluda at a salary of $50 each per month, making an additional 
expense of $400 per month on account of all necessary precaution to prevent 
accidents. 

In addition to the above, you will note that we have always had six hill brake- 
men at a salary of $50 per month each, and these brakemen will be continued in 
addition to the expenses above mentioned. 

In other words, we are at an expense of $700 per month on account of pre- 
caution in handling trains over Saluda Mountain.

Asheville to Saluda, at which point it is customary for all trains to stop and 
make careful inspection of brakes before beginning descent of Saluda Mountain. 
On the date in question train 362 arrived Saluda about 1:30 P. M. The second 
section of train 63 had gone down mountain shortly before they arrived at Saluda, 
and, besides the time usually consumed in the examination of brakes, 362 had to 
wait at Saluda until the two mountain brakemen who assisted train 262 down 
Saluda grade returned to Saluda Station to help them (362) down the grade. 
While waiting for these brakemen the entire crew, except fireman, assisted in the 
examination of the brakes. All of the living members of the crew state that 
the brakes were apparently in first-class condition, and when they left the top of 
Saluda Mountain they felt that the brakes were perfectly safe to control speed of 
train descending the heavy grade. During the inspection of the brakes at Saluda 
Engineer Averill assisted materially, he himself going under the cars and making 
personal examination of the brake chains, dead levers, etc. 



COMPLAIJN^TS AND DECISIONS. 219 

The train made good start from top of mountain, under perfect control, and 
had good trip down moui|tain until train reached point near the thirty-three mile- 
post, or a distance of a mile and a fourth from top of grade. At this point the 
crew state that the cars began to pick up speed. The crew, including conductor, 
state that they doubled on the brakes from one end of the train to the other, 
making every effort in their power to regain control of the train, but they were 
unable to do so, and the cars attained high rate of speed, continuing down grade 
until train reached curve in cut short distance below Melrose, at which point 
engine and eleven coal cars derailed. Engineer x\verill and Fireman Hair were 
buried under the wreckage and bodies not recovered until the next morning. 
Brakeman Sherrill, who w^as riding three or four cars from engine at time of 
derailment, was caught between ear and tender of engine, crushing both legs. He 
was taken to Saluda, where both legs were amputated below the knees, but he died 
at 9 P. M. August 14th. 

Investigation shows that all the usual precautions were taken by the crew 
before the train left Saluda on descent of grade. Crew consisted of conductor, 
flagman and front brakeman, together with two helper brakemen who boarded 
train at Saluda. These men applied brakes from the start, and investigation does 
not show that any one of them failed in their duty, nor did they desert train 
when they saw that they had lost control of it. 

The conductor and trainmen state that when the train first began to pick up 
speed on straight near the thirty-three mile-post that engineer reversed engine 
and vv^orked steam in back gear, but it had no effect towards regaining control of 
the train. 

Seven (7) of the derailed cars were S. A. L. coal cars, 80,000-pound capacity. 
In the investigation Mountain Brakeman W. C. Ward states that in applying 
brakes on the S. A. L. coal cars ratchets on brake-staffs on five of the cars slipped, 
rendering the brakes useless. When the brakes were inspected at Saluda nothing 
was found wrong with the braking apparatus on the S. A. L. cars. 

At the time control of train was lost there was a slight rain falling — sufficient 
to make the rails wet and slick. 

Yours trulv. 



Superintendent. 

Special Order No. 1. 
To all concerned: 

Effective at once, the following rules will govern the handling of trains on 
heavy grades east of Saluda, east and west of Balsam, east and west of Red Mar- 
ble Gap, between Canton and Turnpike, and between Terrell and Old Fort: 

Before beginning the descent, all trains must come to a stop. Trainmen will 
examine all hand-brakes and air-brakes to see that they are in working order, as 
per Rule "E." A car with defective air or hand brakes must be set out and 
repaired before car can go forward. Before starting, handles of all retaining 
valves must be turned up, and air-brake applied to get the benefit of the retainers. 
Before making first reduction, handle of engineer's valve to be in full release 
position, so as to get main reservoir pressure in train line. 

The speed of descending trains uill be controlled entirely by hand-brakes. If 



220 N". c. cobpoeatio:n- commission. 

the retaining-valvc pressure and the application of hand-brakes is not sufficient 
to control train, engineers ivill apply the driver brake on engines that are 
equipped uith independent valve for driver brake. If this is not sufficient, driver 
brake is to be released and reverse lever used to check speed and bring train wider 
control. If all of the above-mentioned appliances fail to control train, then, and 
in such cases only, icill engineers use air. The air must be held to use as a last 
resort. 

In case a freight train ascending the hill from Melrose to Saluda should stall, 
or have to stop from any cause whatever, and cannot pull their train away, such 
train must not attempt to back its train to Melrose, but all hand-brakes must be 
securely set, and the entire crew, including crews of both engines, notified that 
the head engine will cut off, and take as many cars up the hill as they can start 
and pull without having to back up to start. Before attempting to double, the 
crew must be absolutely certain that the brakes on the rear portion of the train 
will hold, before cutting off. On the return of this engine to the rear portion of 
the train, they must move very slowly and carefully, and a man with signals must 
be left at least one-half mile distant from the front end of the train. This order 
will also apply to any other points where helpers are used, and also when trains 
are handled with one engine. 

On the hill between Swannanoa Tunnel and Old Fort all freight trains must be 
brought to a standstill one-half way down the hill, for at least ten minutes, for 
the purpose of cooling the wheels. 

Upon arrival at foot of grades, trainmen will make a careful inspection of run- 
ning gear and wheels, examining the latter especially for cracked plates. 

Freight trains will use the time allowed freight trains between stations, as 
shown on time table. 

Whenever freight trains are not helped up these hills by pusher engines the last 
three cars and caboose in the train must have hand-brakes in good working order. 
Freight trainmen must ride on top of trains ascending and descending these 
grades. 

Passenger trains, before ascending these grades, will come to a stop and test air. 
Under no circumstances whatever will the rear car of a passenger train be hauled 
up these grades if the air is not working on it. It must be switched in ahead of 
a car with the air in good working order. If the air cannot be worked through a 
car it must be set out. 

All east-bound passenger, excursion and special trains must come to a stop at 
Graphiteville, on Blue Ridge Mountain, for the purpose of examining wheels and 
running gears, and cooling icheels. 

Hereafter passenger-helping engines on Saluda Mountain will be placed at the 
rear end of train instead of front end. The air-brake between last car and help- 
ing engine must be coupled up and stop-cock under engineer's valve on helping 
engine shut. On Blue Ridge Mountain passenger-helping engines will be placed 
at front end of train as heretofore.

STANDARD CHAIR COMPANY vs. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 
Claim for overcharge on shipments of logs. Adjusted. 



HIGH POINT FURNITURE MANUFACTURING COMPANY vs. SOUTHERN 
RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Petitioners in this case complained that defendants had raised their freight 
rates on oak and poplar logs, eight feet and under in length, and asked that the 
Commission require them to restore the previous rates in effect, and ship such 
logs at the same rate of freight as applied on hickory, persimmon, dogwood and 
gum logs. After hearing and consideration, it was ordered by the Commission 
that defendant apply the freight rate on logs in the rough as were being applied 
by this system of roads before March 4, 1903, and the issuance of Circular No. 32, 
and as promulgated by Lumber Issue Circular No. 3086, effective from May 
3, 1902. 



SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY to THE COMMISSION. 

Petitioner in this case filed, and asks for the approval of the Commission, a 
schedule of freight rates on hickory, oak, poplar, maple, birch and pine logs, 
eight feet and less in length, being the same schedule of rates as set out in Circu- 
lar No. 32 of the Commission, and asking for its adoption, alleging as follows: 
"In making out these figures we have taken into account that dogwood and per- 
simmon logs can be used for a few purposes only, principally the manufacture of 



232 K". C. CORPOEATION COMMISSION^. 

shuttle blocks, shuttles and spools. A cord of poplar wood yields about 3,000 feet 
board measurement, one-quarter of an inch in thickness, and prior to the 10th 
of June paid $8.50 per thousand; since the 10th of June, they have materially 
increased the prices paid for these logs. The maximum difference which we pro- 
pose as between hickory, oak, etc., and dogwood, is only $2.50 per car, which 
is equivalent to about 25 cents per thousand." The Commission having heard 
argument, and after careful consideration, denied the petition. 



SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY to THE COMMISSION. 

This was an application on part of petitioner asking the Commission to adopt 
for its road a new schedule of freight rates on tan-bark, as filed. Upon investi- 
gation, it appearing that the proposed rates were higher than the present rates 
in effect, and it appearing that the present rates were reasonable, the petition 
was denied.

Claim for damage to buggy in shipment. Adjusted and claim paid. 



SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILW^AY, SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, AT-

ERN RAILWAY COMPANY to THE COMMISSION. 

This was an application on part of petitioners asking that the Commission 
authorize an increase in the minimum weight on fertilizers between points in 
North Carolina, making the car-load minimum fifteen tons instead of ten tons. 
Petitioners alleged that the increased capacity of cars and the increased demand 
for equipment had within the past year or so resulted in increased car-load mini- 
mums throughout the country. That the 30,000 minimum on fertilizers applied 
in Georgia, Virginia, Florida and other States, and alleged further, that the 
present car-load minimum of 20,000 was unnecessarily low and worked a hard- 
ship on the transjjortation lines of North Carolina by preventing the exercise of 
proper economy in the use of cars by shippers, in that under the rule of the 
Commission the shippers are allowed tlie ])rivilege of using an entire car for 
ten tons of freight, when the capacity of the cars jjermit the loading of fifteen 
tons or more. This matter was carefully considered by the Commission, and 
after correspondence with various shippers of fertilizers throughout the State, 
it came to the conclusion that it was not unreasonable to require a minimum of 
ten tons for a car-load of fertili;<ers, and that the petition ought not to be 
granted. Petition denied.

a station on the Carolina Central Railroad, for the purpose of handling freight.

CITIZENS OF STEDMAN vs. WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY. 
This was an application asking that defendant be required to establish a tele- 
graph office at Stedman, a station on the line of the Atlantic Coast Line Road.

THE CAROLINA AND NORTH-WESTERN RAILW^AY COMPANY. 

This was a petition asking that defendants be required ^to erect a union passen- 
ger depot at Lincolnton, a junction point of defendant roads. Answers of de- 
fendants were received, stating that the conditions existing at Lincolnton did 
not require a union station, nor that the busii^ess at that point would justify the 
expense incident to its erection. At a subsequent session of the Commission, it 
appearing that petitioners desired to withdraw the complaint, leave to withdraw 
was fiiven and case closed. 



GOLDSBORO BUGGY COMPANY vs. ATLANTIC AND NORTH CAROLINA 

RAILROAD COMPANY.

of the complainant, which has not been contradicted, that the Southern Railway 
agreed to place the siding desired by complainant, provided complainant would 
furnish right of way, cross-ties and do the necessary grading; and it appearing 
that he has complied with his part of the contract and condition^, it is therefore 
directed that the Southern Railway Company furnish the siding necessary for 
the handling of complainant's lumber within sixty days from date of order."

This was a petition of the citizens of Onslow County, along the New Bern 
Branch of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, asking that the Commission require 
defendant to construct and maintain suitable and separate waiting rooms at

Avere no waiting rooms at all. It appearing that the business at that place 
would not justify the expense of a regular passenger station, and it appearing 
further that defendant had given instructions to have a platform built for the 
use of passengers in taking trains at that place, case was closed.

said defendants be required to accept shipments of freight from each other. 
Defendant Atlantic and Western Railway, in answering the complaint, agreed 
to grant the relief asked for, and at a session of the Commission, December 
7th, it appearing that defendant Seaboard Air Line Railway had failed to 
answer the petition, and no objection having raised to the granting of relief 
asked for, it was ordered that the prayer of the petitioners be granted — that is, 
that the Seaboard Air Line Railway and the Atlantic and Western Railway

CITIZENS OF LAURINBURG vs. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 
This was a petition by the citizens of Laurinburg complaining of the lack 
of passenger accommodations at said station, and asking relief from the 
present conditions; that passengers had to board and alight from trains at the 
freight depot, a quarter of a mile from railroad crossing of Main street, and 
to pass to and fro between passenger and freight cars, the length of passenger 
trains, which cars are so close together that parties cannot pass abreast. That 
there was no protection in bad weather, and it was impossible to hold umbrellas 
over ladies and children. Frequently freight trains were on the track and 
almost invariably freight cars were standing, if not in motion, on the side tracks; 
that lives were endangered almost daily. This matter was called for hearing, 
when petitioners and defendants were represented by counsel, and case con- 



236 ^. C. CORPOEATIOX COMMISSIOX. 

tinned from time to time. The Commission visited Laniinbnrg in person to view 
the situation. 

At a session of the Commission October 4, 1903, this case was called, and it 
appearing from letter of defendant that the depot building had been enlarged so 
that it gave about twice the space as before in each waiting room for passengers, 
and it further appearing that the facilities had been so much improved, and 
that no further order was necessary at the time, case was closed. 



McNINCH & COMPANY vs. SEABOAED AIR LINE RAILWAY AND 
SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Complainants alleged in this case that defendants had for several years only 
charged $1.00 for the transfer of car-loads of cotton, cotton seed and fertilizers 
from warehouse at complainant's place of business in the city of Charlotte, from 
one road to the warehouse on another road, but had recently raised the charge 
for performing this service to $4.00. This matter was served on defendant roads, 
and, in answering the complaints, they admitted that they had only charged 
$1.00 for this service, but that they had been doing the service at a loss and now 
only desired to charge the regular mileage distance tariff allowed for a five mile 
haul. Several hearings were had, and after careful consideration at a session 
of the Commission, the following order was issued: 

The following has been adopted by the Corporation Commission as Rule No. 
35%, and to be added to the rules governing the transportation of freight already 
adopted by the Commission: 

A charge of not more than $2 will be allowed for moving a car, without regard 
to weight or contents, from any point on any road to a connecting road or from 
one warehouse to another warehouse on the same road within the space of three 
miles beyond the starting point: Provided, that this rule shall not apply to cars 
moving from one regular station to another regular station on the same line. 
And provided further, when a car is destined to a point on a connecting line, 
which requires switching, an additional charge of $1.50 may be made for switching. 

Effective at once. 



TRANSFER AND SWITCHING CHARGES. 

Complaint having been made to the Commission of the unreasonableness of the 
charge of $1.50 to $2 for switching or transferring of car-load freights at junc- 
tion points of the various roads on joint shipments, the Commission served 
notice on the defendant transportation companies that it would take into con- 
sideration the question of disallowing the transfer charge for this class of busi- 
ness, and a day was fixed for hearing. Upon hearing and consultation with the 
various transportation companies, it appearing that the companies expressed a 
willingness to desist from the rule of making a transfer charge on joint ship- 
ments, it was so ordered. 



CHARLOTTE SHIPPERS' ASSOCIATION to THE COMMISSION. 

This was a petition by the Charlotte Shippers' Association, representing the 
merchants and business men of the city of Cliarlotte, asking that the Commis- 



I 



COMPLAITN^TS AND DECISIONS. 237 

sion make rules governing storage and demurrage, time limit for placing of cars 
and delivery of freight, local transfer and switching charges. This matter was 
taken up by the Commission and various hearings were had, at which petitioners 
were represented by counsel and various shippers of the city of Charlotte, and the 
transportation companies by counsel and the traffic managers of the different 
companies. After careful consideration the following rules were adopted and 
issued under Circular Xo. 36 :

No storage or demurrage charges, however, shall in any case be allowed unless 
notice of the arrival of goods has been given to the owner or consignee thereof 
by the railroad company, and it shall be the duty of such railroad company to 
give prompt notice to consignee of the arrival of goods, together with the con- 
tents, weight and amount of freight charges due thereon, as shown by way-bill, 
and when goods or freight of any kind, in car-load consignments, said notice

consignment may remain in the custody of the carrier of one cent, per hundred 
pounds per day, with minimum charge of five cents for any one package or lot

one consignment not in excess of a car-load. 

rule III. 

All car-load freight taking track delivery and such as is to be unloaded by con- 
signee, which is not unloaded from cars containing same within forty-eight hours 
(not including Sundays and legal holidays) after the car or cars are placed

each day or fraction of a day that said car or cars remain loaded: Provided, hoiu- 
ever, that seventy-two hours shall be allowed for the unloading of fertilizers,

ASSESSMENT AXD VALUATIOX OF RAILEOAD PEOPERTY. 

In accordance with sections 52 to 59, inclusive, chapter 251, Laws of 1903, con- 
stituting the North Carolina Corporation Commission a Board of Appraisers and 
Assessors for railroad, telegraph, telephone, street railway, canal and steam-boat 
companies and other companies exercising the right of eminent domain, the Com- 
mission assessed and valued the road-bed, right of way, depot buildings and 
grounds used for railroad purposes thereon, both main and side track, franchises,, 
rolling stock and other property of the roads in the State; also the telegraph, 
telephone, street railway, water works companies, express companies, sleeping car 
companies, refrigerator car companies, as appears on pages 1, 2 and 3 of Part II 
of this report. 

The total valuation placed upon this property by the Commission for the year 
1903 Avas $73,802,686, this being an increase of $27,479,450. 

The various railroad companies filed exceptions to these valuations as follows:. 

EXCEPTIONS OF ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY. 

To the Honorable the 'North Carolina Corporation Commission : 

The undersigned. The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, respectfully ob- 
jects and excepts to the assessment for taxation made by your honorable Board 
of its property at the sum of $24,455,000, upon the following grounds: 

First. Because the said amount is believed to be in excess of the true value in 
money of the property of the said railroad company in this State. 

Second. Because the said amount is out of proportion to and greater than the 
assessment placed upon other property belonging to citizens of this State, and is 
therefore a denial to the said railroad company of the equal protection of the law, 
and deprives it of its property Avithout due process of law, contrary to the Four- 
teenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. 

Third. Because the law under which your honorable Board made this assess- 
ment is itself illegal and unconstitutional, in that it prescribes a different and 
more burdensome rule for assessment of property of railroad companies than i& 
prescribed for the assessment of property generally in this State, and is therefore 
a denial to railroad companies of the equal protection of the law, and deprives 
them of their property without due process of law, contrary to the Fourteenth 
Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. 

All of which matters the undersigned is willing to show by proof before your 
honorable body at any time which you may designate for the purpose of said 
hearing. 

Wherefore, The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company respectfully prays your 

honorable body to reduce the assessment made upon its property to such a sum as 

will represent the "true value in money" of its property in North Carolina, as is 

prescribed by the Constitution of this State for the assessment of property for 

taxation.

EXCEPTIONS OF ATLANTA, KXOXVILLE AND NORTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Comes the Atlanta, Knoxville and Northern Railway Company, by attorneys,, 
and excepts to the assessment of its property as shown in the report of said Com- 
mission upon the following grounds : 

1st. Because said assessment is excessive. 

2d. Because said assessment and valuation is in excess of the assessment and 
valuation put upon the tax-payers in general in the State of North Carolina, and 
imposes upon this company a burden proportionately greater than that imposed 
upon the tax-payers in general in the State of North Carolina, and said assess- 
ment and valuation is, therefore, not constitutionally made as provided by the 
Constitution of the State of North Carolina providing for the equalization of 
taxes upon taxable property. 

3d. Because property in North Carolina other than railroad property is 
uniformly and systematically assessed at less than seventy-five per cent, of its 
actual cash value, w^herein the property of this company in North Carolina is 
assessed in excess of its actual cash value. 

4th. Because by reason of the premises above set out said assessment unjustly 
discriminates against said Atlanta, Knoxville and Northern Railway Company 
and in favor of property generally in North Carolina, and therefore denies said 
Atlanta, Knoxville and Northern Railway Company the equal protection of the 
laws guaranteed to it by the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution of the 
United States. 

5th. Because by reason of its gauge that part of its road retains all the charac- 
teristics, disabilities and limitations caused by excessive grades and curves of a 
narrow-gauge road, especially as to that part of its line lying within the State 
of North Carolina, insomuch as nothing whatever has been done to change its 
character or remove these disabilities, five miles of its road in North Carolina still 
being operated with the light narrow-gauge rails, and for this reason its line in 
North Carolina should be classed by this Commission as and with narrow-gauge 
roads, which take the lowest grade of assessment. 

6th. Because since the date of assessment upon a basis of $3,500 per mile no 
improvements whatever have been made in the physical condition of the road-bed 
and track, and nothing beyond maintaining the road-bed in a condition to render 
safe operation has been undertaken, the revenue derived from the entire Murphy 
Branch not w^arranting any expenditure beyond what is absolutely necessary to 
keep this branch line safe for operation. 

7th. Because its equipment, passenger and freight is so limited and meager as 
to be out of all proportion to its mileage, it being old in style and limited in 
carrying capacity, so that the former assessment of $1,600 would be a full, fair 
and reasonable assessment for the years 1903 and 1904. 

8th. Because the unaA^oidable difficulties of operation due to heavy grades and 
excessive curvature, the consequent high cost of handling its traffic by reason of 
minimum train loads, the unimproved physical condition and the low earnings per 
mile of the road do not justify an increase in the assessment per mile over that 
for the years 1901 and 1902, to-wit, $3,500. 

9th. Because the affidavit of J. H. Ellis, vice-president and general manager of 
the Atlanta, Knoxville and Northern Railway Company, and the statement of 
H. W. Oliver, auditor of said company, for the year ending June 30, 1903, show 



244 X. C. CORPOEATIOK" COMMISSION. 

that dining the said twelve months the entire earnings of that portion of the 
Murphy Branch in the State of North Carolina (13.1 miles) amount to $9,025.03, 
while the total expenses of the said 13.1 miles within the State of North Carolina 
amount to $9,726.10, leaving a deficit for the year of $701.07, which would make 
a deficit per mile of $53.52. From all of which this Commission can readily see 
that the Atlanta, Knoxville and Northern Railway Company would have saved 
money for the twelve months ending June 30, 1903, if it had not been the owner 
of the 13.1 miles of road within the State of North Carolina. Any increase in the 
assessment for the years 1903 and 1904 w^ll merely mean an increase in its deficit 
incident to operating its road within the State of North Carolina. Not only is 
this true, but the road is in bad shape in every way, and in order to exercise its 
function as a common carrier it will be necessary for the Atlanta, Knoxville and 
Northern Railway Company to spend large sums of money during the next two 
years to make that part of the road in North Carolina safe for passenger and 
even freight traffic. 

10th. For and on account of all the reasons and exceptions above set out, and 
for reasons set out in the proof herewith filed, the Atlanta, Knoxville and Northern 
Railway Company respectfully but earnestly insists that the assessment and 
valuation made by the Commission is excesive and should be reduced to at least 
the amount of assessment for the years 1901 and 1902, and this company believes 
that a fair valuation of its property for the purpose of taxation by this Board 
would be $2,500 per mile. In this connection it might be stated that the valuation 
and assessment placed upon the Georgia end of the road during the present year 
by the Georgia Commission is $4,500 per mile, with an additional franchise tax 
of $500 per mile, making a total of $5,000 per mile. The Georgia end of the 
road — that is, the main line, which is the portion above referred to — is vastly 
more productive than the Murphy Branch of the road. In fact, the business done 
on the Murphy Branch is a practically inconsiderate quantity. 

In consideration of all of which, said railway company asks that its aforesaid 
exceptions be sustained, and that said report of Commission be modified so as to 
lower said assessment to $2,500 per mile, or to such sum as to the Commission 
may seem right and just, and it will ever pray, etc.

EXCEPTIONS OF SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

To the Honorable the North Carolina Corporation Commission : 

The undersigned. The Seaboard Air Line Railway, respectfully objects and 
excepts to the assessment for taxation made by your honorable Board of its 
property at the sum of $12,500,000, upon the following grounds: 

First. Because the said amount is believed to be in excess of the true value in 
money of the property of the said railroad company in this State. 

Second. Because the said amount is out of proportion to and greater than tha 
assessment placed upon other property belonging to citizens of this State, and is 
therefore a denial to the said railroad company of the equal protection of the 
law and deprives it of its property without due process of law, contrary to the 
Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. 

Third. Because the law under which your honorable Board made this assess- 
ment is itself illegal and unconstitutional, in that it prescribes a diff'erent and 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 245 

more burdensome rule for assessment of property of railroad companies than is 
prescribed for the assessment of property generally in this State, and is therefore 
a denial to railroad companies of the equal protection of the law, and deprives 
them of their property without due process of law, contrary to the Fourteenth 
Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. 

All of which matters the undersigned is willing to show by proof before your 
honorable body at any time which you may designate for the purpose of said 
hearing. 

Wherefore, The Seaboard Air Line Railway respectfully prays your honorable 
body to reduce the assessment made upon its property to such a sum as will repre- 
sent the "true vakie in money" of its property in North Carolina, as is prescribed 
by the Constitution of this State for the assessment of property for taxation.

EXCEPTIONS OF SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

To the Honorable the North Carolina Corporation Commission: 

The Southern Railway Company hereby objects and excepts to the valuations 
placed upon the railroads and railroad properties, including rolling stock, owned 
by the Southern Railway Company and others leased to and controlled by it, as 
follows : 

Southern-Railway-owned lines, assessed per mile at $25,000, total $14,835,250. 

North Carolina Railroad, leased to Southern Railway, assessed per mile at 
$29,928, total value $6,680,000. 

Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line Railway, assessed per mile at $30,000, total 
value $1,295,700. 

The grounds of the exceptions are as follows: 

First. Because the respective amounts are believed to be greater than the true 
value in money of the properties of the said railroad companies, calculated upon 
any lawful and just method applicable to such values. 

Second. Because the said assessments and valuations are disproportionately 
greater than the assessments of the property belonging to citizens generally in 
North Carolina, and is a denial to the Southern Railway Company of the equal 
protection of the law, and will deprive it of its property without due process of 
law, contrary to the Constitution of the United States in its Fourteenth Amend- 
ment. 

(It is admitted that in certain townships or taxing districts in some counties 
there has been a full valuation of some of the real estate, but this is the exception 
and not the general rule.) 

Third. Because the law under which the assessment is made is void, as being in 
conflict with the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, 
in that it prescribes a different and more onerous rule for assessing the property 
of railroad companies from that prescribed for the assessment of other species 
of property, and therefore denies the railroad companies the equal protection of 
the law. 

All of which the Southern Railway Company offers to show to this honorable 
Board by proof, if thereto required. 



24G ■ W. C. CORPOExVTIO^T COMMISSIOX. 

Wlierefore, the Soiithein Railway Company respectfully objects to and protests 
against the valuations set forth above, and asks that the same be reduced to such 
an amount as will represent the true value of the said railroads and railroad 
properties.

First Vice-President. 

EXCEPTIONS OF NORFOLK AND WESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

To the Honorahle the North Carolina Corporation Commission: 

The undersigned, the Norfolk and Western Railway Company, respectfully 
objects and excepts to the assessment for taxation made by your honorable Board 
of its property at the sum of $1,746,800, upon the following grounds, to-wit: 

First. Because the said amount is believed to be in excess of the true money 
value of the property of said Norfolk and Western' Railway Company in North 
Carolina. 

Second. Because the said amount is out of proportion to and greater than the 
assessment placed upon other property belonging to citizens of North Carolina, 
and is therefore a denial to said railway company of the equal protection of the 
law, and deprives it of its property without due process of law, contrary to the 
Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. 

Third. Because the law under which your honorable Board made this assess- 
ment is itself illegal and unconstitutional, in that it prescribes a different and 
more burdensome rule for assessment of property of railroad companies than is 
prescribed for the assessment of property generally in North Carolina, and is 
therefore a denial to railroad companies of the equal protection of the law, and 
deprives them of their property without due process of law, contrary to the 
Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. All of w^hich 
the Norfolk and Western Railway Company offers to show to your honorable 
Board by proof, if so required. 

Wherefore, the Norfolk and Western Railway Company respectfully prays that 
your honorable Board will reduce the assessment made upon its property to such 
a sum as will represent the "true value in money" of its property in North 
Carolina, as is prescribed by the Constitution of this State for the assessment of 
property for taxation. 

The undersigned, the Norfolk and Weestern Railway Company, further object- 
ing and excepting, and still relying upon the exceptions and objections filed by it 
heretofore to the assessment of its property and franchises for ad valorem taxa- 
tion, files the following additional and supplementary exceptions and objections 
thereto, to-wit : 

Fourth. Because in making said assessment the Commission has not observed 
and followed the directions or rules laid down in section 55 of the Machinery Act 
of 1903 and the subsections thereunder (which are in this respect the same as 
in the Machinery Act of 1901, section 50), which were construed by the Supreme 
Court of North Carolina in the case of Jackson v. Corporation Commission, 130 
N. C, 385, to be mandatory, in that the Commission has not assessed for ad valo- 
rem taxation in North Carolina the tangible and intangible property and fran- 
chises of the undersigned separately, and the aforesaid tax assessment is therefore 



COMPLAK^TS AND DECISIONS. 247 

not in harmony with the Machinery Act itself as construed by the Supreme Court 
•of North Carolina, and is repugnant to both the act itself and said decision. 

Fifth. Because the tax imposed by law for the "privileges," or "licenses," or 
"franchises," of the undersigned, Norfolk and Western Railway Company, to 
operate its two several railroads in North Carolina, to-wit, Roanoke and Southern 
Railroad and Lynchburg and Durham Railroad, are specifically fixed and regu- 
lated by its graduated gross earnings per mile on each of said roads under sec- 
tions 77, 78 and 79 under Schedule "C" of the Revenue Act of 1903, which said 
franchise taxes specifically imposed as aforesaid the undersigned (as it has done 
heretofore) is ready and willing to pay to the State of North Carolina whenever 
required by law to do so. And the plain reading of said section 79 of the Revenue 
Act of 1903 distinctly provides that "No county, city or town shall be allowed 
to collect any tax under this section." 

Sixth. Because if, in addition to its aforesaid franchise taxes mentioned in the 
preceding section, the undersigned should be required to also pay additional taxes 
upon its franchises upon an ad valorem valuation, as is provided in the aforesaid 
section 55 and subsections thereunder of the Machinery Act of 1903, and as is 
contemplated by the Commission in making the aforesaid tax assessment for ad 
valorem taxation upon the company's property and franchises, then the aforesaid 
tax assessment violates the fundamental maxim in taxation that the same prop- 
erty shall not be subject to a double tax, payable by the same party, either directly 
or indirectly. 

Seventh. Because the aforesaid assessment of the aforesaid franchises of the 
company for ad valorem taxation according to the directions or rules laid down 
in subsection "b" of section 55 of the Machinery Act is in fact, by whatever name 
it may be called, the imposition of such an income tax upon the undersigned as is 
prohibited by the Constitution of the State of North Carolina, Article V, section 3, 
where it is provided that "No income shall be taxed when the property from 
Vi^hich the income is derived is taxed." 

Wherefore, and upon the foregoing additional objections and exceptions, the 
undersigned, the Norfolk and Western Railway Company, reiterates and renews 
its prayer that the aforesaid tax assessment be reconsidered and reduced according 
to law. 

Guthrie & Guthj^ie, 

AjLttorneys. 

The Norfolk and Western Railway Company, objecting to the tax appraisement 
made by the Commission on its property and franchises in North Carolina for the 
current year, and applying to the Commission to reconsider and reduce said assess- 
ment, respectfully submits the folloAving as a basis of its objections and applica- 
tion: 

The Norfolk and Western Railway Company is a corporation chartered by the 
State of Virginia, and operating under its charter lines of railroad or branches in 
the States of Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Kentucky and 
Ohio. 

The main trunk line runs from Norfolk, Va. (its eastern terminus) to Bristol, 
Tenn., and from Radford, Va., to Columbus, Ohio. It operates branch lines from 



248 X. C. COEPOEATIOX COMMISSIOTnT. 

Portsmouth, 0., to Cincinnati ^ 115.00 miles 

Graham, Va., to Norton, Va, (to a connection at this point with the 

Louisville and Nashville Railroad) 100.30 " 

Lynchburg, Va., to Durham, N. C 117.58 

Roanoke, Ya., to Winston-Salem, N. C. (to a connection with the Sea- 
board Air Line and Southern railways at these points) 121.30 " 

The total mileage operated being 1,716 " 

For the purposes of this application we have to deal only with its operation of 
the branch lines extending into North Carolina: 

Lynchhurg and Durham — 117.58 miles, of which in North Carolina 41.69. 

Winston- Salem — 121.30 miles, of which in North Carolina 45.65. 

This company has already — as required by law — made its report of the physical 
or tangible property in the shape of equipment ( rolling stock ) , depots, real estate, 
etc., with which said reports the Commission is already familiar. We have already 
reported the gross earnings, operating expenses and net earnings for the whole 
mileage in the State of North Carolina, but not separately by branches, which fol- 
lows later in this statement : 

Section 55a. In making this report as to the physical or tangible property, any 
figures furnished by this company at this time to replace the physical or tangible 
property would be largely on an estimated basis. It seems that after a careful 
consideration of this subject that a fair estimate could be arrived at by taking the 
cost to the Norfolk and Western Railway Company of the branches separately — the 
old securities held by each branch and the amount issued for the same by the Nor- 
folk and W^estern Railway Company on acquisition. 

Lynchhurg and Durham Branch. 

Bonds and stocks acquired, $1,533,000, for which the Norfolk and Western 
issued its securities amounting to $1,531,750; the market value of same being 
$1,364,672 for the whole line. 

Valuation per mile, $11,600. 

Annual interest charge per mile $523.00 

Net earnings in North Carolina per mile 364.87 

Deficit per mile $158.13 

Winston-Salem Branch. 

Bonds and stocks acquired, $2,043,850, for which the Norfolk and Western 
issued its securities amounting to $2,451,337.50; the market value of these securi- 
ties for the whole line being $2,222,853.92. 

Valuation per mile, $18,320. 

Amount of interest charges, etc., per mile $ 810.10 

Net earnings in North Carolina per mile 1,295.74 

Surplus in North Carolina per mile $ 485.64 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 249 

The earnings by branches, separately, were as follows : 

Lynchburg and Durham in North Carolina — ^1.69 miles. 

Gross earnings $94,514.56 

Operating expenses 76.220.70 

Net earnings $18,293.86 

Less taxes 3,082.62 

Balance $15,211.24 

Interest on funded debt in North Carolina 21,716.32 

Deficit $ 6,505.08 

In the case of this branch (as it did not earn its interest on the funded debt) 
we can take the net earnings as a basis, which at 6 per cent, on $250,000 would 
produce $15,000: 41.69 miles into $250,000 equals $6,000 a mile, apart from our 
liability for interest on the funded debt, which it did not earn. 

Winston-Salem Division in North Carolina — 45-65 miles. 

Gross earnings $211,019.18 

Operating expenses 147,576.58 

Net earnings $ 63,442.60 

Less taxes 4,292.11 

Net $ 59,150.49 

Less interest on funded debt, etc $ 59,150.49 

Surplus $ 22,257.07 

From which deduct the deficit on the Lynchburg and 

Durham, of 6,505.08 

Net surplus in North Carolina $ 15,751.99 

i/e/7iO.— Taking the surplus, $22,200, as a basis: 6 per cent, on $370,000, 
divided by the mileage, would produce $8,222 a mile as the value for this branch. 

Section 55h. Franchise: 

The earnings in North Carolina, on both branches, were: 

Gross earnings $305,533.74 

Operating expenses 223,797.28 

Net earnings $ 81,736.46 

. Less taxes 7,374.73 

Balance $ 74,361.73 

Less interest on funded debt, etc 58,609.74 

Surplus in North Carolina $ 15,751.99 

It would therefore seem — taking the net earnings as a whole — that a fair assess- 
ment for the Lynchburg and Durham would be $6,000 per mile, and for the Win- 

19 



•250 N. c. corporation: commission. 

ston-Salem Division $8,222 per mile, based on tlie net earnings per mile in North 
Carolina. 

Characteristics of the Road. 

Lynchburg and Durham. — AYeight of rail, 56 pounds per yard. Ballast, about 
2 inches of cinder. Equipment, light. One passenger train daily. 

Winston-Salem. — Weight of rail, 56 pounds per yard. Ballast, about 3 inches 
of cinder. Equipment, light. Two (2) passenger trains daily. 

As compared with the main line. — Weight of rail, 85- pound steel. Ballast, 10 
inches of stone. Equipment, heavy, first- class type. As against four passenger 
trains a day on the main line, with extra additional trains in the coal fields. 

The proposed increase in taxes by the Commission would add a burden to these 
two branches of more than $10,000 a year in taxes. It is interesting to note the 
present assessment per mile of these two divisions and the proposed increased 
assessment as against the current assessments now made by the various States for 
mileage of a similar length. 

The Cincinnati Division, form Portsmouth to Cincinnati (the same distance as 
the Lynchburg and Durham), is assessed at $3,500 a mile. 

The main line (Scioto Division), from North Kenova to Columbus (one of the 
best earning pieces of property that we have), is assessed at $10,000 a mile. 

The branch from Graham to Norton (to a through connection with the Louisville 
and Nashville Railroad), 100.30 miles, is assessed at $10,000 a mile. 

The Lynchburg and Durham and the Winston-Salem Division is assessed by the 
State of Virginia at $7,500 a mile each. 

It is proposed by the Commission to assess our two branches in North Carolina 
on the basis of $20,000 a mile. 

The main trunk line of the Norfolk and Western is assessed at $15,000 a mile, 
and where we have a double track it is classified as "second track" and assessed 
at $5,000 a mile. 

The operations of the Norfolk and Western Railway Company of its branches 
from Lynchburg to Durham and from Roanoke to Winston-Salem are of a dis- 
tinctive character, being merely feeders to the main line from Columbus, Ohio, 
and Bristol, Tenn., to Norfolk, Va. The Board of Public Works of Virginia have 
always so recognized this in making their assessment on the branches in question 
lying within the State of Virginia — the assessment per mile being about one-half 
of the main line — the earning capacity, the character of the roadway and track 
and equipment all being treated as a separate factor in reaching a conclusion in 
making their assessment per mile, it being a recognized fact in the case of these 
branches that their local traffic would not pay their operating expenses if operated 
as separate branches. Their value is in their connection with the main line at 
Lynchburg and Roanoke with the territory south — at Durham and Winston-Salem. 
If they were independent lines of road to-day (as they were before their acquisi- 
tion by this company), and had as such to take business in a competitive way, as 
against the Southern, with whom we would connect at various points, they could 
not possibly make the showing of gross and net earnings they now do, when their 
earnings are augmented by the tonnage sent over them from the main line of the 
system. These divisions have never been a paying investment to the Norfolk and 
Western Railway Company, and they make the showing of net earnings (exclusive 



COMPLAINTS AI^TD DECISIONS. 251 

of earning any interest on the bonded debt) they do by being useful in the handling 
of connection business south, which — if we did not have them — would naturally go 
to other lines. 

We have spent in the last two years a considerable amount in replacing miles 
of old wooden trestles on these divisions with permanent iron structures, in order 
that the safety of our passengers could be secured and the handling of trains 
could be done at a reduced operating expense. These improvements will continue 
until we get the road-beds in such shape that we can operate our rolling equipment 
with safety. 

All these improvements have been made from the surplus income of the main 
trunk line. Every dollar that we spend in improving the road-bed and railway 
proper, putting in steel bridges instead of wooden bridges, is adding to the value 
of the tangible property, but is not adding a penny to the franchise. It is hoped 
that when all the improvements necessary are completed that these divisions can 
then be made to show sufficient net earnings to at least meet the charge for interest 
on the funded debt, if not add something to the revenue account of the main line. 

Again, we pay what the State of North Carolina denominates as a "privilege 
tax" on the gross receipts in the State. 

A similar tax levied in Ohio is known as the "excise tax," and in the State 
of Virginia as a "franchise tax." Hence it would seem that if we are taxed by 
the State separately on our franchise, that we will be in the position of paying 
a double tax for the same purpose. 

The entire surplus in North Carolina for the year — as reported — was $15,751.99. 
The proposed increase in our assessment would wipe out 66 2-3 per cent, of this 
surplus and increase the operating expenses to that extent, reducing the surplus 
earnings on the 238.88 miles of road to about $5,250.66 per annum. 

Submitting these facts to your honorable Board, the Norfolk and Western 
Railway Company respectfully requests that the assessments of its branch lines 
in North Carolina be made more nearly in accordance with the value of said 
branches, taking into consideration the physical condition of the properties and 
the earning capacity of same. 

Respectfully submitted,

CIRCULAR No. 36. 

( As Amended. ) 

STORAGE AND DEMURRAGE RULES— TIME LIMIT FOR PLACING OF 
CARS AND DELIVERY OF FREIGHT— LOCAL TRANSFER AND SWITCH- 
ING CHARGES. 

Storage and demurrage may be assessed by railroad companies on all freight 
received for delivery in car-load lots or in less than car-load lots if not removed 
in conformitv with the followino- rules and regfulations : 



No storage or demurrage charges, however, shall in any case be allowed unless 
notice of the arrival of goods has been given to the owner or consignee thereof 
by the railroad company, and it shall be the duty of such railroad company to 
give prompt notice to consignee of the arrival of goods, together with the contents, 
weight and amount of freight charges due thereon as shown by way-bill, and 
when goods or freight of any kind, in car-load consignments, said notice must 
contain letters or initials and number of the car. Notice shall be given by deliv- 
ering same in writing in person, or by leaving same at consignee's place of busi- 
ness or by depositing it in the post-office. 

RUDE II. 

For storage of package freights and all freight less than car-load, unloaded in 
depot or warehouse, which is not removed by the owner thereof from the custody 
of the railroad company within forty- eight hours (not including Sundays and 
legal holidays), a charge of storage for each day or fraction of a day that such 
consignment may remain in the custody of the carrier of one cent per hundred 
pounds per day, with minimum charge of five cents for any one package or lot for 
any one consignee, may be made; but not more than one dollar per day for any 
one consignment not in excess of a car-load. 

RULE III. 

All car-load freight taking track delivery and such as is to be unloaded by con- 
signee, which is not unloaded from cars containing same within forty-eight hours 
(not including Sundays and legal holidays) after the car or cars are placed ac- 
cessible for unloading, may be subject to a charge of one dollar per car for each 
day or fraction of a day that said car or cars remain loaded: Provided, hoioever, 
that seventy-two hours shall be allo^^'ed for the unloading of fertilizers, brick and 
the following commodities, when in bulk only: Cotton seed, cotton-seed hulls, coal, 
coke, fertilizing material, grain, lime, tan-bark and dressed lumber in box cars. 
Provided further, whenever by reason of delays in transit cars are bunched and 
more cars than one are received at same time, no demurrage shall be made for 
excess over one car: Provided, at least one car shall be unloaded daily. 



I^. C. COEPOEATION C0:M]\IISSI0T^. 



RULE IV. 



When consignors ship goods consigned to themselves or order, it shall be the 
duty of the railroad company to give legal notice to such consignees or persons 
to whom shipping directions order delivery. This notice may be addressed by mail 
to the consignee at point of delivery, and demurrage will begin as in other 
cases of notice by mail; and the mailing of such notice shall be sufficient notice 
in such cases, whether the consignee actually received the same or not. 

RULE v. 

The time allowed for removing freight before storage or demurrage charges 
apply will be computed from 7 o'clock A. M. of the day following date of notice 
(Sundays and legal holidays excepted). 

RULE VI. 

A consignee living more than five (5) miles from the depot, and whose freight 
is destined to his residence or place of business so located, shall not be subject 
to storage or demurrage charges allowed in the above rules until a sufficient time 
has elapsed after notice for said consignee to remove said good by the exercise 
of due diligence: Provided, that in the delivery of car-load freight railroads will 
not be required in any case to hold freight free of demurrage for a longer period 
than five (5) days after notice, except as otherwise provided in Rule II. 



Where, upon the request of an intending shipper, the railroad company places 
a car or cars at a reasonably accessible point on its team tracks or on a private 
track designated by the shipper, free loading time shall expire forty- eight hours 
(not including Sundays or legal holidays) from the time such car or cars are so 
placed; and thereafter a demurrage charge of not more than one dollar per car 
per day or fraction of a day may be assessed and collected on all such cars as 
have not been tendered to the railroad company with shipping instructions. 

RULE VIII. 

When any railroad company fails to deliver freights at the depot or to place 
loaded cars at an accessible place for unloading within forty-eight hours (not 
including Sundays and legal holidays), computed from 7 o'clock A. M. the 
day after the arrival of same, the shipper or consignee shall be paid one dollar 
per day for each day or fraction of a day said delivery is so delayed: Provided, 
the railroad company may require the payment of freight before delivery. 

RULE IX. 

Where a shipper makes application in writing for a car or cars to be loaded 
with any kind of freight, and the railroad company fails to furnish same within 
four days fiom 7 o'clock A. M. next day after such application, such railroad 
company so offending shnll forfeit and pay to the shipper applying the sum of 
one dollar per car per day foi- each day or fraction of a day's delay after the 
expiration of free time: Provided the shipper makes demand therefor in writing 



CIRCULAKS. 259 

within thirty clays thereafter. The railroad companies may require applicant to 
deposit two dollars for each car so demanded. This money may be retained as 
a forfeit to the railroad company in case the car is not loaded, to pay trackage; 
if the car is loaded, then the said two dollars shall be refunded to the shipper 
with the bill of lading. 

RULE X. 

Whenever shipments have been received by any railroad company, such ship- 
ments destined to stations within a distance of fifty miles from starting point 
shall be delivered within three (3) days from 7 o'clock A. M. next day after 
receipt of shipment, and in one day's additional time for each additional twenty- 
five (25) miles or fraction thereof; or for failure to transport such shipments 
within the time prescribed the railroad company shall forfeit and pay to the 
consignor or consignee the sum of one dollar per day on all car-load freight and 
one cent per hundred pounds per day on package freights and freight in less than 
car-load, with minimum charge of five cents for any one package: Provided, 
the shipper makes demand therefor in writing within thirty days thereafter : 
Provided further, that the amount of the penalty demanded on any shipment, 
less than car-load, shall not exceed one dollar per day, and in no case exceed the 
value of the goods transported. The period of time during wiiich the movement 
of trains is suspended on account of accident or any cause not within the power 
of the roads to prevent shall be added to the free time allowed herein and 
accounted as additional "free time." 



Whenever the weather during the period of free time is so severe, inclement 
or rainy that it is impracticable to secure means of removal or loading of freight, 
or where from the nature of the goods removal or loading would cause injury 
or damage, such time shall be added to the free period, and no demurrage charges 
shall be allowed for such additional time. This rule applies to the state of the 
weather during business hours. 

RULE XII. 

The Commission reserves the right to hear and grant application to suspend 
the operation of these rules upon complaint of abuse, or whenever justice shall 
demand this course. 

RULE XIII. 

Local Transfer and Switching Charges. 

Railroad companies shall furnish shippers cars for loading, and shall also accept 
from each other cars loaded at warehouses or side-tracks of one road for delivery 
at side-tracks or warehouses on the other road within the space of two miles 
beyond the starting point. The railroad company furnishing the car and per- 
forming the initial movement may charge two and one-half dollars per car. 

RULE XIV. 

When car is destined to a warehouse on a connecting line which requires 
switching, the company so receiving and delivering may charge $1.50 additional. 

After car is placed for loading, the shipper shall load same within twenty-four 
hours therefrom, and consignee shall, when car is placed for unloading, unload
